The care I received at Burnley Birth Centre was excellent; I would recommend this hospital to my friends and family.

I had both my little girls at Blackburn Birth Centre. I had a water birth with both and had a relaxed birth both times and staff were great.

I had both my children at East Lancs and the care I recived was outstanding. Unfortunately I had an emergency caesarean, although this was a stressful situation all the staff made me feel at ease and I felt confident in their care.

The midwives at Burnley Birth Centre were fantastic when I had my little girl, their support was outstanding and I found them to be extremely efficient and well organised. All the midwives I dealt with were friendly and polite and I was instantly relaxed in the surroundings. The centre itself was clean and I felt welcome and in safe hands. A pleasure to have such a beautiful birth centre with such wonderful staff and I would highly recommend east lancs to anyone in the area.

After developing pre-eclampsia at 34 weeks, I cannot thanks and praise the staff enough for their fantastic, highly attentive care, which nursed me back to health and delivered my baby safely into the world at 36 weeks. Outstanding care.

Blackburn birthing centre was the best experience I’ve had with my fourth child. The care and hospitality was excellent. It actually felt like a hotel I couldn’t fault anything! The midwifes were amasing too.


My first baby was born at the East Lancs Women & Newborn Centre. I had to be induced; I was kept well informed by the midwifery team throughout the induction & labour. My midwife Maya was supportive & listened to my needs & made my partner very involved in the whole experience. My daughter was welcomed into the world and I then went to stay on the postnatal ward where I spent the night whilst receiving breast feeding support. I feel very lucky to be able to access such fantastic services in East Lancs.

I had my little boy at Burnley in June 2011. The care I received was amazing. I had a few complications throughout my labour. The support, care and encouragement I received truly kept me going and I delivered a healthy baby boy. The staff were all friendly and caring and constantly let me know what was going on throughout the labour. I’m due to have another baby and I know going to Burnley I will be well looked after and won’t need to worry about a thing.


Had my baby at Burnley, brilliant. Friendly atmosphere and staff .


Blackburn birth centre, amazing experience loved being in labour and the midwifes where totally fab. Lovely calm environment felt very intimate with my partner as midwife was always there but left us to enjoy every moment. Had natural birth but problems with placenta so had to be transferred to Burnley who also offered a lovely caring time. My only down side was when I was transferred I my baby couldn’t be transferred with me and it took 4 hours for her and my partner to be sent over from Blackburn to Burnley which was quiet upsetting. I’d still go to Blackburn again but think there should be things in place for baby to travel with mummy as it can be quit traumatic being separated.


Burnley was lovely loved every minute, the birth suite was so relaxed staff was amazing.


Started at Blackburn Birth Centre as planned but had to be transferred to Burnley. The care I received at both was fantastic, including the transfer in ambulance. Can’t praise the staff enough for everything they did and would give my midwife the highest praise, she was amazing.


I was looked after really well at Burnley, I was in a week after an emergency C-section. My midwife stuck by my side the whole time in theatre. one off the midwifes took the time to take lots of precious pictures on my phone at all the different stages- getting head measured, being weighed etc.- they went the extra mile. The staff are all amazing, could not thank them enough. They mad what was a scary experience, bearable.


The care I received at Burnley was amazing, just can’t say any more my midwife Rachael was so professional and helped us have the delivery we wanted which was as natural as possible.


I had my little girl at Burnley birth suit. I had a rubbish pregnancy and was little worried about the birth. But the midwife made me feel in control and I made all the decision towards pain relief etc. I absolutely loved giving birth, I would recommend Burnley to any pregnant women. I had her in September (busiest month of the year) and still was made to feel just as important as all the other women.

Burnley was great, through all the drama, I had the same two midwives and both were helpful and nice. For the big moment, I had nine doctors in the room but they were all kind and caring. I would definitely say Burnley hospital saved my baby’s life with their fast actions and quick thinking without them; I wouldn’t have my gorgeous baby girl.


Blackburn birthing centre absolutely loved it, wouldn’t want to go anywhere else! Even my partner enjoyed the experience as he was absolutely dreading it.


I was taken in early due to high blood pressure and swelling, was monitored and had pre-eclampsia. The care given whilst being monitored was amazing, couldn’t have felt more at home and secure. When contractions started and I was taken to delivery suite, again care was excellent I loved my midwife, I was made very comfortable and felt looked after by all the staff. The doctor was amazing, very precise but was the best guidance I needed to get my daughter out safely.
