Maternity Units – What they offer

You can choose to go to the closest, or a neighbouring, maternity unit. Some units are more suitable if you or your baby need specialist medical care. Click on a region below to see what units are available.


Each trust offers a home birth service

Independent Midwifery

Provision for independent midwifery, Yorkshire Storks Midwifery collective and a number of sole traders provide services for the Northern areas.

Where units have a co-located MLU provision, the birthing environment may not be physically separated. The birthing environment may be a designated room/s or section of a labour ward where women follow a midwifery-led care pathway.
