Information leaflets in different languages and other formats

Along with the advice you are provided by your midwife/doctor and the information on our website, several organisations have produced important information leaflets for women and families in different languages to support women during their pregnancy.

Interpreting service

You have a right to an interpreter at all of your appointments and during your care in hospital. Staff can access our interpreting service, which is available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. If you do not speak English and need to have an interpreter for your appointment, please let your midwife or doctor know.

Most interpreting is now accessed via the telephone on the ward or clinic, and where needed we will offer a face-to-face interpreter.

Accessible information

If you have a disability that affects your ability to communicate, please let us know. We are able to provide support such as a British Sign Language Interpreter and provide information in an alternative format if this is required.

Using the Google translate feature on our website

It is important you read the information on our website to support you through your maternity journey.

Our website has a Google translate feature which you can use if English is not your first language. By default the Google translate function will not work on our website if you are using a mobile device, as it has only been designed by Google to work effectively on a desktop. If you would like to use it on your mobile device, then you need to change your browser settings to view 'Desktop version'.

Please note this service is a third party service provided by Google, and not all text may be translated accurately and some information might not be able to be translated. The Royal Free London is not responsible for incorrect or inaccurate translations; please refer to Google Translate for more information.

If you have any questions about your care, do not hesitate to speak to your midwife.
