About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

I could not thank all of the midwifes at the rvi enough for making me feel comfortable and in safe hands for the birth of my first baby in December 2015. I had the birthing centre experience which was lovely and the surroundings and cleanliness of the hospital was of a high standard. Although it wasn't picked up that my baby was lying back to back on my first visit into the assessment unit which resulted in slower contractions and me being turned away twice because they were too slow, this is the only fault I could make. Would be my first choice for any future maternity care.
