"Beautiful amazing birth, wonderful environment..."

About: St Mary's Hospital (Melton Mowbray)

I had my first baby July 2014 at St Marys. It was a pretty much 'textbook' birth, i had my son in the birthing pool and it was a relaxed quiet atmosphere and i cannot fault the midwives. They make you feel like you are a little girl again by looking after you and giving you their full attention. I felt like i was their first customer!! They helped me consistently with breastfeeding my son and the midwife even changed my sons first nappy! I would recommend, any one that can and that is low risk to go here. It was a wonderful experience and i feel sorry for mums that have to go into busy hospitals like the Royal and the General to have their babies like they are on a conveyer belt.
