Having your baby at Barking Birth Centre

Having your baby at Barking Birth Centre

Choosing our birth centre

Welcome to our maternity service at the Barking Birth Centre, based at Barking Community Hospital. Our birth centre is staffed entirely by midwives and provides a relaxed home-like environment for pregnant women who have had a straight forward pregnancy. We help to deliver thousands of babies every year and are very proud of the services and high-quality maternity care we provide. 

We welcome people from across the London boroughs of Newham, Barking, Havering, Redbridge and other surrounding boroughs, including Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Waltham Forest. We are also very happy to care for women from other parts of London and Essex to come and give birth at our birth centre.

All of the staff you meet during your care with us should introduce themselves and carry an identification badge. Please do not be afraid to ask for a person’s name or role if you do not know who they are.
