Patient Story: Clare’s Positive Birth Experience at Sidra Medicine
Clare Flores, had her beautiful baby girl Charlotte at Sidra Medicine and shares her story about her positive birthing experience with us.
“For the birth of my second child, I wanted to choose a place where I could have a gentle and empowering birth experience, where my birth plan would be followed and respected as far as possible. All the staff were so caring and dedicated to their work. The team of midwives were incredibly skilled in childbirth and mother and baby care.
I am so happy with that I choose to deliver at Sidra Medicine, and wouldn’t hesitate to deliver there again or recommend it to other mothers to help them enjoy a pleasant and reassuring birth experience.
Throughout my whole pregnancy and aftercare, I was treated with respect for my birthing plan and it was followed exactly as I wanted. I could never imagine having such a perfect hospital birth experience anywhere else in the world. A sincere thanks to Sidra Medicine.”
