How do I have a positive birth on labour ward?

I recently wrote a post on the difference between labour ward and a birth centre. Birth centres are amazing and we're so lucky to have one here in Salisbury now. However if you aren't able to use the birth centre, please don't be disappointed you can still have a really positive birth on labour ward!

The feedback from everyone about Salisbury Labour Ward is overwhelmingly positive, particularly about the midwives who are supportive, caring, amazing and advocate for the families they look after so very well.

Despite it being a consultant led labour ward you'll be surprised at just how very little you see of the Doctors! The Midwives are amazing at what they do and most normal births don't require any kind of involvement from a doctor. However they're always around if you do happen to need them!
