Maternity Services

mother and baby

Our maternity services are based at Worcestershire Royal Hospital, where we recently opened our new midwife-led Meadow Birth Centre and an additional maternity ward.

Here, our midwives, children's doctors and obstetricians (doctors who look after women in childbirth) provide high standards of care to suit your individual needs. Our service has been nationally recognised by the UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative for our approach to promoting breastfeeding and for the safety and quality of our service.

We’ll care for you throughout your pregnancy, and you will usually be able to attend antenatal clinics and day assessment appointments at whichever of our hospitals is most convenient for you.
