This weekend certainly has been a busy one! Today we went down to our local birthing centre for a tour. Luckily it was pretty empty so we were able to get a good feel for the place and see the all important room where the water births happen! I could not believe just how big the rooms were, a complete different experience to the tour we did on the labour ward that’s for sure.
I am very much hoping to be able to give birth at the birthing centre, it had a real feeling of calm about it and the midwives were so nice.
I would really recommend having a tour of the facilities if at all possible as it was nice to see where all the action happens before it actually happens and I think also for the birthing partner it is great for them to know where to go and what will be expected of them.
