    I discovered Dawn, a midwife working from Albir in 2010. What a delight! I went from dreading my pregnancy to loving every minute. I saw Dawn throughout my pregnancy, she gave us tips on what should be happening, breast feeding, child birth, birthing techniques and sent us for a 4D scan as well as the usual blood tests, urine tests and blood pressure. The most unique part of Dawn service is the openness and availability of her wealth of knowledge throughout the pregnancy. Whenever I panicked, i could pick up the phone and she would be able to help, guide and advise, superb! My son was born in March 2011 and Dawn was one of the first people to phone me up and make sure everything was OK. She offered for us to come see her for measurements and checks on a regular basis and the support she provided was phenomenal so it was good to have this support in place. I can honestly say that without Dawn my pregnancy and post birth experience could have been a lot more stressful. (CF)

    Dawn worked with us during my partners first pregnancy. Her reputation preceded her, prompting us to move from Madrid to be nearby for our pregnancy. The prospect of having our baby in a foreign country would have been truly daunting without Dawn’s overwhelmingly caring personality and highly professional style. During our regular appointments we received the highest standard of care to Mummy and Babys wellbeing! (thankfully also to Dads!!!) My partner had a planned C-Section yet Dawn was thorough in training us as to the ways of labour and what to expect in that eventually. It was obvious from the start that Dawn really cares and is always happy to offer any advice 24-7, no matter how simple it may sound. On baby day Dawn was with us for the entire day and offered us support on how to cope with all baby matters. We look back and cannot fault any of Dawn’s treatment, to that end we definately made a very good move! We are proud to know Dawn as a true professional and now as a very dear friend. We would recommend Dawn and all the staff at the Medical Centre in Albir to anyone. (Dan)
