We provide a midwife-led maternity unit where you and your birth partner can relax in our comfortable and homely environment.
Care is provided by a small team of midwives and maternity support workers. Our staff are friendly, highly skilled and trained to give complete care during your pregnancy, birth and postnatal period. We are fully committed to supporting your choices for childbirth.
Over 80% of women use the pools for pain relief and 67% have a water birth. Our pharmacological pain relief is only 3% as the birthing pool is extremely effective.
As this is a midwife-led unit there are no consultants, so this unit is only suitable for women who are experiencing a normal pregnancy, with no adverse medical history or previous pregnancy complications.
