Antenatal (having your baby at Princess Royal University Hospital)

Antenatal care is the care you receive from healthcare professionals during your pregnancy. Although we don't have birthing facilities at Queen Mary's Hospital, we do provide antenatal care. And when you're ready to have your baby, you can also talk to us about where you want to give birth. You can choose to do this at home or the Oasis Birth Centre at the Princess Royal University Hospital.

Our antenatal care includes routine health checks, tests and screening for you and your baby, specialist support if you are having a multiple birth or planning a natural birth after a previous caesarean section, and extra help for vulnerable women through the Poppy Clinic.

We hold regular midwife and consultant-led clinics at the hospital. You can also choose to have your care provided by community midwives locally in GP surgeries, at children’s centres or at home.
