Excellent maternity care is comprehensive and flexible to respond to the clinical and social needs of each family.
We know that every woman, baby and family is unique and will have different needs depending on their own circumstances. We want to work in partnership to help every woman achieve the experience that is right for them.
Our team will ensure that you have the correct information to help you reach the choice and decisions that are right for you to develop a personalised care plan. When circumstances mean that a different care pathway is recommended, we will ensure that we provide information and an explanation for you to make an informed choice.
The care we give you follows “best practice” and is research based. We are continuously auditing our care and revising our working practices in the light of new evidence and the national service framework for maternity services.
Everyone on our team is committed to treat people with kindness, understanding and dignity and will respect the privacy, religious and cultural beliefs of families. We do our best to be very clear in our communication with you and your support network so you are actively involved in decision making in your overall care. Interpreting services will be offered for women where English is not their first language.
Our key aim is to support you to have the best possible pregnancy, birth and postnatal experience and to help ensure that you have a healthy baby.
