Will I deliver where I choose?
Yes in the majority of cases. We intend for you to deliver in the place of your choice. In order to keep you and your baby as safe as possible, in rare cases, you may have your care at a different hospital. We will always inform you of this change.

You can contact your family doctor, (your G.P. ) in the first instance and make an appointment to see the midwife. If you experience any problems contacting a midwife you can contact your chosen maternity unit for information.
