Maternity

We care for women and their babies, during pregnancy, labour, birth and up until one month after birth.

Our midwives provide midwifery-led care in a number of settings, including local General Practitioner (GP) surgeries, children’s centres and within our hospitals at:

A home birth service is available dependent upon an individual assessment and neonatal services at Conquest Hospital.

Over 6,000 outpatient appointments take place each year within the department and our hospitals are teaching hospitals so we involve students with all aspects of care.

Your experience of pregnancy and birth really matters to us, and we will do all we can to provide the best possible care for you, your partner and your baby, within the hospital, community and home settings.

We are committed to personalised care and will try to meet your wishes so far as it is safely possible.

These pages provide general information about our services and include video tours of Conquest Hospital Maternity Unit and Eastbourne Midwifery Unit which guide you through your pregnancy journey.
