Maternity services


If you are planning a homebirth around this time, your midwife will speak to you about what this means for your care.

We are proud to provide supportive, personalised and high-quality maternity care to more than 10,000 women living in and around Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey, Hertfordshire, Islington, and Middlesex.

We offer maternity care from several hospitals and community hubs. Our two main maternity hospitals are Barnet Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital. We also provide maternity services at Chase Farm Hospital, Edgware Community Hospital, Cheshunt Community Hospital, Finchley Memorial Hospital and a range of health centres, GP practices, children's centres and other community locations.

National maternity safety strategy

The Government asked all organisations with maternity services to make a commitment to contribute towards achieving the national ambition and improve maternity outcomes. The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust maternity services are part of this National Maternity Safety Strategy and has implemented a Maternity Safety Improvement Plan to support the national Maternity Safety Ambition.
