"Amazing experience!"

This was my first visit to Blackburn Birth Centre and I can honestly say it was an amazing experience! Throughout my pregnancy I was lucky enough to meet several of the lovely midwives who work there. All the staff we met were exceptional, very professional and caring, they couldn't do enough for you! For anyone thinking of going to give birth here I would highly recommend it! The facilities are brilliant, it's like home from home. The rooms are lovely and spacious with birthing pools and various other equipment with doors leading out to lovely gardens for you to walk round. There's a TV room and kitchen with an endless supply of tea, coffee and toast! I would just like to thank all the staff at Blackburn Birth Centre as they made my time there a memorable and wonderful experience!
