September 2020 To all the very dear staff at the Warkworth Birthing Center, How does a first time Granny (sitting about 11,765kms away in Cape Town), begin to say THANK YOU to each and everyone of you for standing in the gap for me while you attended to our precious family, following their recent post-delivery journey? The labour didn’t quite work out as she thought it may, but they were able to come to your facility following the C section, where they were offered personal, loving, competent care, wisdom and guidance. I am so grateful that you became their family and safe space during those early days after baby was born. You can bet that if it wasn’t for Covid, I most definitely would have been in Auckland! I myself am a trained midwife, but what I was told by them, far exceeded anything I had seen or heard of here in South Africa. It made me want to turn back the clock and set up a similar facility here. I know that our family left Warkworth in a positive frame of mind, ready to take control of the new responsibility that they’ve been given. I am super proud of how they are navigating parenthood, and I’m sure it is because of the good start they were given to bond as a new family unit under the watchful eye of your wonderful support team. Thank you once again, for what you do, and how you do it.
January 2021 We had the most wonderful stay at Warkworth Birth Centre. The Midwives were incredibly helpful and such lovely, kind women, we felt totally supported during our stay (even at 2am!). Not having to worry about food, housework, ANYTHING at all gave us a chance to really focus on bonding with our new baby, learning to breastfeed, sleeping and recovering. Having dad stay the whole time was amazing, and allowed us both to build so much more confidence - having him there for bathing lessons, breastfeeding advice etc. meant that he was better able to support me when we got home. We have raved about our wonderful experience to all of our friends, and would absolutely recommend to any new parents. Very grateful to have had the opportunity to stay! Thanks so much. Croft Family.
March 2021 I heard Warkworth Birthing Centre was good, but didn't know it was this good! Thank you so much for your support. My time here was so valuable, could not recommend you more.
