    I found this really useful, as OH and I are moving and decided to look up our new hospital. It gives you information on different aspects of the hospital, from what type of pain relief they offer to what facilities they have in their birthing/labour rooms.

    Mine's not on there either. That's the one in southampton, it's pretty big, so I was surprised. I don't even get any of the others near me :(

    Ohhh no ignore that iam sooo dumb , I blame the pregnancy . I found now where it says about pain relief etc lol . xx .
     
  14. I have discovered it only has one birthing pool. Do most hospitals have only one?

    Edit:

    Nuchal translucency (NT) scan: No
    For multiple pregnancies only.
    The combined test (NT scan plus a blood test): No
    Women from the age of 35 and women in certain risk groups are offered this scan. This is also available in our Private clinic.

    This is wrong for my hospital they offer it for every woman.

    I thought it seemed quite good but the fact that my hospital changed names months ago hasn't been updated...and they've spelt breech as "breach" so if that's not accurate I don't know how accurate their information is.

    When are the statistics from coz I can't see if it's from this year, last year, this month etc???
