Book to have your baby with East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust's Maternity service

Please use our form below to book to have your baby with our Maternity service.

This booklet will help you make informed choices around your care and you can use it to record your thoughts and feelings during your pregnancy journey, or use it to spark conversations with your Midwife and Maternity team. It does not form part of your medical record.

We use an electronic maternity notes system called ‘BadgerNet’ – see more information.
