Praise for the Birthing Unit

News 2012-022012 started on a very positive note for the Crowborough Birthing Unit with two babies, a boy and a girl, born on New Years Day followed by praise for their treatment from both new mums. 

Mia Byrne is the third child for Joanne Finn, and Sean Byrne, of Jarvis Brook, who already have two boys, Leo(6) and Callum(3) and were delighted to have a little girl. Although Mum, Jo, was only in the birthing unit for a matter of hours, she was very happy with the staff, the atmosphere and the treatment she re- ceived. This was her first birth at CBC and she would certainly recommend the Unit as a lovely place to give birth, de- scribing it as “very peaceful and relax- ing”.

Rupert Yeandle also has two older brothers, Alfred(3) and Elliot(21 months). His parents Caroline and Julian first met at school in Bristol but moved to Uckfield before starting their family. Caroline had her first son at CBC and was delighted to be attended by the same midwife this time around. She described the unit as “amazing, fabulous, laid back; the place to give birth!” and appre- ciated the 3 days she spent there estab- lishing breast feeding and bonding with Rupert before returning home to the “chaos” of three young children.
