Personalised care plans

Personal care plans will help you explore, understand and record your individual choices for pregnancy, birth and early parenthood. Everyone and their family is different, with individual needs, which have an influence on care and preferences. 

You can choose the provider of your antenatal, intrapartum (labour and birth) and postnatal care. 

You can make decisions about the support you need during birth and postnatally; and where you would prefer to give birth, whether this is at home, in a midwifery unit or in an obstetric unit, after full discussion of the benefits and risks associated with each option.

Antenatal classes

Please ask your midwife about local antenatal classes. These are available from 28 weeks into your pregnancy.

Our maternity department has created a set of films so that you, your birth partner, your family and friends can share your maternity experience.  

Screening for pregnant women and their babies

During your pregnancy, you'll be offered some screening tests to try to find any health conditions that could affect you or your baby.

The tests can help you make choices about further tests and care or treatment during your pregnancy or after your baby is born. All screening tests offered by the NHS are free.

More details on these tests are available on the NHS website.

Home birth

You can choose to birth your baby at home.  Your midwife can talk to you more about this.  You can download our home birth leaflet which explains more.
