Midwifery services


What we do

We offer antenatal, postnatal, and intrapartum care, including home births, in a friendly and welcoming environment that has received top marks in a quality assessment carried out by the National Health Service Litigation Authority, and achieved Stage 3 Baby Friendly Status.

Most women will have midwife led care throughout their pregnancy, but if you have an existing medical condition, or a concern is identified in your pregnancy, your midwife will offer you a referral to a Consultant Obstetrician. This will be discussed with you at the time.

Although we are happy to see emergency cases when referred by GPs, we do not have an emergency department here.

Stop smoking support

We know that giving up is not easy so we have a dedicated, specialist team who can provide personalised support to help you stop smoking. We offer a combination of medication and counselling which is proven to triple the chances of quitting successfully. Find out more about the stop smoking support.

Post-birth contraception

Contraception may be the last thing on your mind when you are pregnant, but it is the best time to think about it if you want to delay or avoid another pregnancy.  Many unplanned pregnancies happen in the first few months after childbirth. You can get pregnant as early as three weeks after your baby is born. Find out more about your contraceptive choices.
