"I gave birth to my first child ..."

What I liked

I gave birth to my first child at Stroud Maternity Hospital in March this year. We had a water birth, and from the moment I arrived at the hospital I found everything to be fantastic. The birth was everything I had wanted and all my wishes were actioned. The whole experience was wonderful and the carers and midwives were extremely helpful and provided all the assistance I could possibly need. I was able to spend several days in the ward after the birth learning how to successfully breastfeed and care for my baby. I would recommend Stroud Maternity Hospital to everyone who has a straightfoward birth, and to those who want to learn how to care for their baby before they return home with their wonderful bundle of joy.
