Oh dear!! Such a loss to the community. I have known, and know currently, people who have benefited from this unique facility. If I won the lotto tomorrow, I'd have the place up and running in a jiffy...In the meantime, perhaps some of the "deep pockets" in the area, some of the young up and coming multi-millionaires, might be enticed to donate to the cause. What a lovely gesture that would be. Good karma too!!
As a community midwife and birth activist, I felt that we were very lucky to have this facility in our area. The warm water pool allowed women with blood pressure or swelling concerns to benefit from deep water immersion without shocking their systems or the baby. It was also an excellent location for postpartum rehabilitation for the new mothers, since they could also take their babies into the pool with them.
This closure is a tremendous loss to the community and I hope that a similar facility will open soon.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
