Have your baby at Barking Community Birth Centre

Have your baby in a relaxed, home-like environment at midwife-led Barking Community Birth Centre on Upney Lane.

Why choose Barking Community Birth Centre?

Highly-skilled midwives provide one-onone support to help you to give birth naturally in one of the four comfortable rooms. Most rooms have birth pools, and every room comes equipped with balls, mats, beanbags and stools so you can find the position most comfortable for you during labour.

It is recommended that women with low-risk pregnancies have their baby at a midwife-led birth centre. You are less likely to require medical intervention, and the outcome for your baby is as good, if not better than giving birth at a labour ward in a hospital.

Women who choose to have their baby at a birth centre are more likely to:

  • have a better birth experience
  • give birth naturally
  • not need interventions such as caesarean sections
  • not require pain-relief
  • breastfeed.

Come and meet the midwives to find out more:

  • Wednesdays at 6pm
  • Sundays at 11am

To book a tour call the centre on 020 3644 2450.

If you can’t make these times, please contact the centre and they will arrange a visit at a time that suits you.
