Experiences using the maternity services in Harrogate – Ruth C

Here you can find stories from parents who have used our services across the local area.

Ruth C

Olivia is my second born, I had my first in another hospital. What a different, more positive experience I had at Harrogate. I’d done hypnobirthing in preparation and had some birthing preferences, particularly around the ambience. I had the pleasure of using the birthing pool and my midwife (Rebecca) could not have been more supportive. She seemed to instinctively know what I needed and I couldn’t have done it without her.
