    Hi

    I live in Aylesbury and have decided against a homebirth. My MW has told me I have two options - have the baby in the labour suite or in the midwife led unit.

    Has anyone been on a visit and seen what the difference is? I'm on a waiting list (not sure how long they want me to wait and whether the baby will come before I get to the top of the list :haha:)

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance :hugs:

    I'm having mine at Stoke, was quite keen on High Wycombe ABC because it's all been done up and looks fantastic but was told I was too high risk so been booked there. I haven't looked around Stoke but my midwife says the birthing centre has recently been done up and looks great but really want to find some photos online or hear some stories. Really frustrating that there isn't an online tour or anything

    I will be going to the Stoke Mandeville, we only moved to Oakley about 3 months ago so I have no idea what it is like but my midwife said my options (due to previous post-partum haemorrhage) are either Oxford John Radcliffe or Aylesbury Stoke Mandeville so I've decided on SM x
