Your birth choices
Whether this is your first baby or you are adding to your family, we aim to work with you and your birthing partner to plan the labour and birth that you want, which includes where you would like to have your baby, who you would like to support you.
Our highly skilled team of midwives and maternity care assistants can support you to have your baby in your own home or in one of our birth centres which offer a calm and homely environment. Whilst a majority of women experience a normal pregnancy and birth, our labour ward provides care for women and babies who need additional monitoring throughout labour and birth.
Wherever you choose to have your baby, we hope you find the following pages useful in helping you make your decision.
