Midwifery services


COVID-19 update

Due to coronavirus we have introduced restrictions guided by NHS England to maintain the safety of all mothers and babies. Please view the latest guidance here.


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 A+E department here.

The Infant Feeding Specialist Midwives provide a tongue tie division service for breastfeeding babies up to 12 weeks old, and accept referrals from midwives, health visitors, GPs, and breastfeeding supporters via this  form.
