Hi there, just wondered if I could get anyone's experiences of births at the Royal Berkshire in Reading. ) I only know 2 women who gave birth there but they were special circumstances. Sorry for all the questions but I don't know how else to get reassurance (if its due!
In fear i went to see the lovely lovely ladies at Twyford scanning place who did size sacn and yep DS was huge 9lbs13oz!
with this they advised i went back to midwife and demand consultants appt.
I am not allowed on their antenatal class because priority is given to 1st babies (which I agree with so don't mind) and the NCT refresher is in the mornings and would just be madness if I took my son! My worries are: - coping with contractions at home and knowing when to go to the hospital - booking with dignity... I've had 2 scans done there and wasn't too impressed with those so this is just adding to my fears. After long labour and various things going wrong i ended up with c-section. When i was on the delivery suite it was brilliant care and i stayed there until about 8 hours after my little one was born then was transferred up to the ward.
At 40 weeks DS was showing no signs whatso ever of making apperence and i begged to be allowed to book induction (i don't mean do it, just make appointment for piece of mind!
I ended up in theatre afterwards because I had a very bad tear and heavy blood loss but even down in theatre I couldn't fault how nice everyone was and how at ease they made me feel. From what I remember there are some birthing balls but if you want to be sure of having one you should take your own. Oh I had a student midwife in with me as well but you can refuse this if you don't want one in there. Did you feel confident the midwife would pick up on any slight problem with you or your baby? With hindsight I wish I had but I thought I was only going to be there half a night!
Turning to the points you raised: Coping with contractions at home and knowing when to go to the hospital - you should be told this on your tour but my understanding is that they don't want you to go in until your contractions are four/five minutes apart and (from what I've heard) they are quite quick to send you home if this isn't the case. Does a pediatrician check your baby as soon as they're born? What happens once you go home regarding checks on the baby?
So, later that day we managed to see own midwife who just said if i was so bothered she would refer me- i wasn't just bothered i was now terrified!!!
anyway appt was made at RBH to see consultant for 41 weeks to be allowed to book induction. where i was told i was tall so should be a piece of cake (consultant was male!
I had my first child 2 years ago when we were living in Dubai so it was private health care and I had a brilliant (albeit difficult! This time around I'm actually getting really quite anxious about what to expect. Please tell me your experiences, with honesty, and any tips you can suggest. Hi there, just wondered if I could get anyone's experiences of births at the Royal Berkshire in Reading. ) I only know 2 women who gave birth there but they were special circumstances. I had my little boy there just over 2 years ago and wanted to try for a home birth.
