I’m a mum to be

Where can I choose to have my birth?

Home Birth

A home birth can be requested via your community midwife. Arrangements will be made through your community midwife and a supervisor of midwives.

The community midwife carries out antenatal care at your GP’s surgery or in your home. If complications arise in labour you can be transferred in to hospital.

Birth in the hospital

Our main labour ward area is based at University Hospital, Coventry.

If you are low risk or high risk in this pregnancy you can spend the early part of labour at home.

Contact your midwife or Maternity Triage to discuss the best time to attend the maternity unit.
