A Redruth mum expecting her second baby tells Pirate FM maternity facilities at Cornwall's biggest hospital do need updating.

£300,000 is being spent on new equipment such as fetal monitors and incubator resuscitaires, as well as two birthing pools at Treliske.

A bereavement and counselling room is also being introduced to help support families through the most difficult times.

The money is part of a £10m government funding package to help NHS Trusts improve maternity care and give expectant mums more of a choice where they give birth.

30 year old Stacey Bonner said: "For a start more and more people are moving to the county, more homes are being built and everything, there's going to be more women going in there, keep up with the technological advances, you know best care possible for mums and babies.

"I can't fault the staff at Treliske they were great, but the facilities probably could use updating, and seeing that it's the main place in Cornwall to go, expanding the facilities is only going to be a good thing."

Teresa Philips is the Clinical Midwifery Lead at Treliske: "It's a very exciting journey for a pregnant mother and her family, and what we want to do is just move with the times, have up to date equipment to make their stay in hospital as relaxed as possible.

"Women that given the opportunity to actually labour in water or indeed have their baby in water, there's less pain relief needed and it's much more relaxing for them."
