Hi all,

I'm having my baby in Glasgow, but I'm not really from the area and I certainly don't know any parents around here (I am a student). I have been told I will be having my baby at the Princess Royal Maternity Hospital. So far I've had two scans and a midwife appointment there and I like it, but I just wanted to know if people had a pleasant (however pleasant it can be anyway) birthing experience here? Do they offer birth pools as well? - I have yet to decide a birth plan I just want to research my options first.

Many thanks x

Yes they have birthing pools. Been to both hospitals. Prefered the after care in the royal and the pre care in the southern.

But it is your choice which hospital.

I had a miscarriage confirmed at the southern. And went on to have my ds at the princess royal.
The southern were the most uncompassionate people I have ever met.
Princess royal the staff are lovely. It's clean and the staff are happy to help with breast feeding support etc
I had a c section and it went great.
Good luck and I hope everything goes well flowers

I had all of my 3 kids at the Princess Royal. They were absolutely fantastic. My second pregnancy was with twins who came 9 weeks early. The midwives made it so much easier for me and my family they could not have been more caring and understanding.That was a few years ago though but i am sure it is still as good.

Good luck
