*Please note: Currently due to COVID-19 our birth centre at Samuel Johnson Community Hospital is temporarily closed.
Derby Birth Centre is a midwife-led centre that consists of 4 en-suite rooms and a water birth room. It offers a ‘home from home’ experience, for patients who wish to have the comforts of a home birth with the added reassurance of being in a hospital.
All rooms have sensory lighting, calming music and soft furnishings, complete with swinging crib ready for the new arrival! The homely environment allows you to relax in peace with your baby.
