Welcome to pregnancy and birth services

Our aim is to provide high-quality, safe care that meets your needs and those of your baby and family.

We will help you to make informed decisions about your care so that you and your family feel confident about your pregnancy, birth and parenting your new baby.  Wherever you choose to have your baby we want you to have the best birth experience.

We are delighted to support you throughout this very special time and look forward to welcoming you and your partner to one of our maternity departments very soon.

Am I pregnant? What should I be eating? Is it normal to be this tired?  Whatever you want to know about getting pregnant, being pregnant or caring for your new baby, you should find it on the NHS Choices website .

The Start for Life information service provides expert advice for parents-to-be and new parents.
