"The most positive birth experience yet"

About: Aberdeen Maternity Hospital / Obstetrics (Maternity care)

(as the patient),

I had my 4th baby in March at the midwife unit in Aberdeen maternity hospital. My first labour was very quick and I worried with each subsequent pregnancy that I would have a fast labour. The midwives in the unit were really understanding of this and invited me in for review when I felt my labour had started. This actually ended up being my longest labour of all, but the most positive birth experience yet! I had 3 midwives take care of me in total and all of them were excellent. Calming and as non invasive as they could possibly be. They took such good care of me and my husband while we waited for our final baby to complete our family. Thank you so much for an amazing experience
