"The Townsville Birth Centre"

About: The Townsville Hospital / Special Care Nursery

(as the patient),

I had the most amazing experience at the TBC. My midwife was Penny & I couldn't thank her enough for all of the support she gave me through my pregnancy, birth and post partum period. The birth centre is an amazing facility, giving women who are at low risk the chance to have the birth they truly desire. My birth couldn't have gone any smoother or more calm than it did & I have the birth centre to thank for that. I now have a truly beautiful bond with Penny who was not only my midwife but has turned into a wonderful friend who I trust entirely.

Thank you for providing us with your story which reflects the superb work that our dedicated and caring midwives do every day for our community. I agree our birth centre is an amazing facility; nevertheless, it is the people who work within the birth centre that makes it exceptional.

Congratulations sydrose, and thank you for sharing your story,

With warm regards
