Your labour & birth

Our goal is for you to feel informed, empowered, and safe during your labour and birth. Our aim is to provide you with all the information you need to make the best decisions for you and your family.

You can talk to our midwives and obstetricians about your birth options, choices and preferences and see our care guidelines to help you understand our recommended pathways of care.

If you think you are in labour or are worried about you or your baby’s wellbeing, please contact our maternity team on Central Labour Suite (24 hours a day) 01244 365026 or 365028.
