whether your rights to:
the care options made available to you (eg, waterbirth, VBAC, vaginal twin birth, vaginal breech birth).
Please do not include clinician names. All submissions will be checked and any clinician names will be replaced with "xxx" before publication.
Suggested length: 4 - 10 sentences (although the text box takes a lot more). Please also consider sending your feedback to your birth service. Receiving women's experiences really makes an impact on the quality of their care.
"During my pregnancy I prepared for a normal birth but in the final weeks concerns were raised about the size of my baby so the hospital recommended induction. I didn't really want to do it but felt I had no other option. Unfortunately this led to a very different birth for me and my baby. I would seek a second opinion next time."
"My midwives were so supportive of me through my pregnancy and birth. Being a first time mum I was super nervous and didn't know what to expect but they informed me every step of the way and gave me confidence in my body. Another bonus is that waterbirth is available at this hospital so I gave birth in the water. We will be forever grateful for what they did for me and my baby."
