Home births

***Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we've had to make some important changes to our maternity services to help keep you and our staff safe. This includes temporarily suspending our home birth service.***

 

Coronavirus is having a significant impact on all NHS services across the country and we are doing everything we can to ensure that the safety of women and their babies is not compromised.

We are contacting the women who were planning to have a home birth in the coming weeks to explain the changes and discuss alternative options with them. We know that these are extremely difficult times and we want to do whatever we can to reassure women due to give birth and support them to have a safe deliver

We will continue to closely monitor the situation and home birth services will be restored as soon as it is safe to do so.
