Having a baby is such a special time in your life and we want you to have the best possible experience. We’re here to offer you lots of support throughout pregnancy, during birth and after the birth of your baby.

You can find lots of information below about our birthing centre at The Northumbria hospital, as well as our midwifery-led units and all the ante-natal and post-natal care that we offer.

Birth Reflection Service

Sometimes following a birth it is helpful to talk through your experience. If you’ve had your baby with us, you can spend time talking to a midwife through our birth reflection service.
