Wycombe Birth Centre
The Trust is dedicated to providing safe personalised care and choice to women and birthing people.
The Trust took the difficult decision to temporarily stop births at the Wycombe Birth Centre in March 2020 due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the workforce and our need to ensure the safety of all women and babies in our care.
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing difficulty in recruiting midwives, it is currently not possible to safely restart births at Wycombe Birthing Centre.
The temporary suspension of some services at Wycombe Birth Centre during the pandemic has been essential in order to maintain safe staffing across all maternity services at the Trust.
If you are currently considering your birthing options, or had planned to give birth at Wycombe Birth Centre, please be assured that you will continue to be fully supported by a birth centre continuity team midwife.
Aylesbury Birth Centre has the same midwifery-led care as the Wycombe Birth Centre; you also have the choice of home and the consultant-led labour ward at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. Your midwife will discuss all options with you.
Antenatal and outpatient postnatal care continue to be offered at Wycombe Birth Centre.
Please contact your midwife if you have any concerns or questions. Thank you for your understanding.
