Coronavirus - Information and changes to our Maternity Services

Find out how our Maternity services have changed during the Coronavirus pandemic, on our Maternity services during Coronavirus page >.

We understand this is a challenging time for expectant mothers and new parents. Information and guidance is regularly changing and we will make every effort to keep women and families updated. 

Midwife led care at home or in hospital

If you are physically well and healthy and the likelihood of you or your baby developing problems in pregnancy is low, then we recommend that you are cared for by a midwife.

You can choose whether you would like to give birth at home or in hospital. The midwife will be your first point of contact, for information and support for all your pregnancy and birthing needs.

Apart from when you have your scans at the hospital, your antenatal appointments will be held at your local GP surgery, health centre or children’s centre.
