Choosing our hospital

Welcome and thank you for choosing our Maternity Services at Whipps Cross University Hospital. We recently underwent a £9 million refurbishment which includes a new research centre dedicated to Women’s Health.

We offer a wide range of culturally diverse services throughout your pregnancy. This starts from before you get pregnant (pre-conception), during your pregnancy (antenatal), right through to after you have given birth (postnatal). If you choose to have your baby with us, we have an expert team of midwives and doctors who will work with you to plan a safe and comfortable birth.

Depending on what happens during your pregnancy you have the option of having your baby at home, in our Lilac Birth Centre, or the Labour Ward at Whipps Cross University Hospital.

Our services are safe, you will be treated with respect, inclusivity and dignity. You and your family will be supported in every way possible if you choose to have your baby with us.

We embed our trust values in our everyday maternity care.

In 2019, our services we were rated as 'Good' by our healthcare regulators.
