Birth Choice Services

Planning your birth

For women who want to talk with us in detail about birth plans and choices we offer you one to one sessions with one of our senior midwives. 

Vaginal birth after caesarean section (VBAC)
For those of you that have had a Caesarean section and would like to try for a normal birth this time we have individual and group sessions where you can discuss options with a midwife. You can ask your community midwife to give you details.

Home birth

Published 22/07/2022

Our home birth service is being temporarily suspended due to ongoing system pressures.

Our primary concern is the safety of our mothers and babies and in the event of a home birth needing emergency transfer to a hospital, we must be confident of a timely response. The small number of families affected are being contacted directly by our midwives.

The situation will be reviewed at the end of August. 

Birth in a midwife led unit
We have midwife led units within each hospital. See here for details of specific services near you.
