I wanted to, but due to my stupid heart complication I 'wasnt allowed'
I could have though, I had my son on the 'delivery unit' of the Rosie all unmedicated and wonderful. I really cannot speak highly enough of my experience there! There were absolutely wonderful. I had one midwife, she closed the door to my room and said 'Sophie, you CAN do this without an epidural (I was begging for one
) lets have this baby'
and I did, I am SO pleased that she was so encouraging. Nothing was too much trouble! I got hot chocolate and toast and was discharged 6 hours after his birth after a relaxing bath.
My friend had her baby on the 'birthing centre floor' and she had a wonderful experience too. She had her baby in water. If you have any specific questions I can ask her.
