    I really wanted a homebirth for my son as I felt strongly that I wanted to avoid using pain-relieving drugs and any medical intervention during labour but my husband was keen for me to give birth in a hospital as he was worried incase anything went wrong. We managed to compromise on the “Geburtshaus” as it is an intimate, caring facility for natural births but with the ability to offer modern medical care in case of an emergency. I had my check ups here too during pregancy and also attended a few courses and highly recommend the acupuncture treatment they offer for birth preparation. Luckily I had quite a straightforward birth and the one on one support I got from the midwife was invaluable. She really created a loving atmosphere and was so in control that I felt absolutely happy and able to concentrate on the task in hand. I used the birthing pool as I felt being relaxed would help me breathe calmly (which it did). I really felt that I was in my own world and miles away from any medical facility and this definitely helped me during the more painful contractions. When my son arrived my midwife subtly left the room leaving us all to enjoy this magical moment in complete privacy. The follow up care I received from the Geburtshaus was also fantastic and for any pregnant mums in Hamburg I highly recommend it. (Kasia Bala)
