We deliver around 11,000 babies each year, at home, within our Midwife led Birth Centres and on the two main hospital Delivery Suites. We believe that most women labour best with as little medical interference as possible, in a place where they feel supported, safe and informed, surrounded by those they trust and who care for them.

Our midwives offer women who are considered ‘low risk’, the option to have their baby at home or at a Birth Centre.

Women who experience problems or who are more likely to develop one are seen within one of our Obstetric and Specialist clinics, where medical staff or a midwife will develop an individualised plan of care.

We provide a wide range of specialist services here in Leicester. In this section you will find links to information covering the many aspects of care provided by our maternity units.
