"A wonderful experience"

About: Alexandra Hospital

What I liked

Giving birth to my first baby was daunting. But the staff and Midwives at the Alex made it a fantastic experience. I was treated with respect and dignity, the atmosphere was calm and relaxing, and I was able to choose my pain relief and birth method. I was not steered into doing anything I did not want. After giving birth in a pool I spent 2 days in the Maternity Ward, which despite being busy, provided excellent care.

Anything else?

Please don't close this facility, it is excellent.
