Amazing maternity unit. This was my 2nd child with my 1st being born in the old maternity unit & what a complete difference. The new unit is like a hotel, with your own bathroom (as opposed to a shared toilet & shower). The midwifery led unit is so relaxed & after giving birth they tend to leave you to, so that you & your partner can have some time alone with the baby. If this was your 1st, I imagine that it could seem like you were being abandoned, but that isn't the intention. It's just designed to be so relaxed. There isn't any rush to be sent home until you are ready. Tea, coffee and food is there for you & your partner. I loved it there, was just such a nice, relaxing birth experience. Couldn't have asked for a better midwife and service.
