The best possible care for you and your baby
At Barts Health we want to ensure the best possible care for you and your baby during your pregnancy. Please speak to your midwife or contact us if you have any queries.
A birth that you can choose to meet your needs
At Barts Health NHS trust you can choose to have your baby at one of our tranquil birthing units or in the comfort of your own home cared for by experienced midwives, or in one of our labour wards with doctors close at hand. For some women, giving birth in hospital will be the safest option.
