Hi there

I am going to be having my baby in Belfast in August and would like to hear experiences of the different hospitals.

I'm having to transfer quite late in the day from London because of practical circumstances.

If things go safely I want to try a waterbirth and have as little intervention as possible. Does anyone know where I can find stats on intervention or get any general advice?

Thank you!

And does anyone have experience of Daisy Hill in Craigavon?

Daisy Hill hospital is in Newry

the hospital in Craigavon is good, my friend had all her DC there.

I had DD at Royal Maternity in Belfast which is part of the RVH hospital group. I had a great experience - elective CS

Have also heard good reports about the Ulster Hospital, which is just a few miles from belfast city centre.

All would have the facilties you want (dont know about the newry/daisy hill one)

Hope everything is going well!
Had both my boys in the Ulster hospital, both times really good experiences- lovely new building with really nice facilities and water birthing if everything is going ok for you.
Are you going to be in Newry or Belfast? not sure but I think you may have to register with a doctor who will then refer you to a hospital- Daisy Hill is 40miles from

I had my baby at the Ulster. I had a water birth in the home from home unit. It was a very positive experience and the staff and facilities were excellent.
