Giving birth – Introduction

Wherever possible we promote normality in childbirth right from the start. When we first meet you, we will talk through the different choices for where and how to give birth, and make sure that you have all of the information you need to make the decision that is right for you.

This can either be at home, in the Natural Birth Centre, or in the delivery suite – these options all depend on your personal circumstances and progress with your pregnancy. Your care will either be left by our midwives or consultants.

We will make sure you are able to have a discussion with your midwife or doctor at around 36 weeks into your pregnancy to agree a place of birth that will be best for you and your baby.
