"I had my first child here and the..."

About: Andover War Memorial Hospital

What I liked

I had my first child here and the experience was all I could have possibly hoped for. Everything went well, and we were all brilliantly looked after from beginning to end. I gave birth in the morning, and was back in my home environment later that very evening as was my wish.

I was put under no pressure whatsoever with making my own mind up about things such as breastfeeding, leaving when I felt ready, etc.

What could be improved

Nothing from my experience!

Anything else?

I am due to give birth again at the beginning of March and absolutely gutted that I am not going to have the option to do it all again at the Andover Birthing Centre, and this has made consider having a home birth as it is the next best thing as far as I am concerned!

Please, please, please reopen the ABC before 1st March 2010!!!!!
