About this service

Introduction

Welcome to our pregnancy and birth services

When you first learn that you’re pregnant, please get in touch with a midwife or GP as soon as possible.  Telling your GP and/or midwife promptly will help to make sure you receive maternity healthcare that takes into account all your health needs and preferences.

Our aim is to offer choice, support, information and excellent care to you and your family throughout your pregnancy, during your labour and after your baby is born.

We place you and your family at the centre and involve you in all decision-making regarding your pregnancy, labour and birth.  As you come to decide where you would like to give birth, your midwife will discuss with you any information you need to help you make an informed choice.
