Your Baby and You
From the moment you discover you are pregnant, your life is transformed. Our maternity services aim to provide all the support you need during this life-changing period, from ante-natal classes to state-of-the-art birthing facilities.
Whether you choose to give birth to your baby at home, in one of our relaxed, midwifery-led birth units, or in our new obstetric delivery suite, as a mother-to-be you can rest assured that you and your baby are in capable hands. Our highly skilled team of midwives, obstetricians and paediatricians can help you have the birth you want, and provide medical expertise should you need it.
We hope these webpages will give you a taste of the services we offer for women in our hospitals. If you still have any questions, please speak to your community midwife or GP.
