Description of service

Meet the maternity team

Throughout your pregnancy and after the birth of your baby there is a team of professionals based at the hospital and in the community to care for you and your baby. You may not meet all these people but below we explain who they are and what they do:

Our midwives: Our midwives work within the hospital and community. They are trained to give you the care and advice you need to help you prepare for the birth of your baby. They will also be with you during the delivery of your baby and care for you afterwards (postnatal care). We also have specialist midwives available to provide extra care and support should you need it.

All our midwives are supported by a supervisor of midwives. They are experienced midwives who have undertaken additional training to support and guide the midwives working in our maternity unit.

Our obstetricians: These are doctors who specialise in pregnancy and childbirth. Our obstetric team are experts at providing care and support to you if there are circumstances where extra care is needed, for example, if you have or develop a medical condition such as diabetes.

Working together

The midwifery and obstetric teams work closely together to provide a high standard of care that meets your changing needs throughout your pregnancy. The team also has close links with other specialists such as anaesthetists, our neonatal unit and social services.

Education

We are an education centre for doctors and midwives so you may be asked if you would be willing to have a student or another doctor or midwife at your appointment or delivery of your baby. If you do not wish to take part, please let us know, we will understand.
