Our maternity services

If you have any concerns around your pregnancy please call our Triage Helpline Tel: 0300 131 5341

Welcome to our maternity service, we are very proud of what we do and absolutely committed to providing high quality maternity care for women, birthing people and their family during their pregnancy, labour and after the birth of their baby.

About our maternity services

Making informed decisions is associated with positive birth experiences. We are strong advocates for, and support women/birthing people to make informed choices about their care and the place in which to give birth.

The choice of having a home birth or a birth in our midwife led unit will routinely be offered to you if you have a straightforward pregnancy, which means that you do not have any known complications that may affect your pregnancy and the birth.

If your pregnancy is not straightforward, you will be offered the choice to have your baby in our delivery suite where we can provide high quality, safe care to meet your individual needs. 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:

Over 6,000 outpatient appointments take place each year. As we are a teaching hospital, we involve students (medical, midwifery, ambulance service, physiotherapy and nursing) 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.


The Care Quality Commission (CQC) run a campaign aimed at raising awareness of the CQC amongst women who are pregnant, planning to have a baby, are looking to become pregnant, or have recently used maternity services in England. They want more women to be aware that if they’re pregnant and choosing where to have a baby, they should be able to choose the right birth plan, and that CQC resources – inspection reports and rating, are there to help make that decision.

Consumer research the CQC recently commissioned has highlighted low awareness among new mothers of their inspection reports and the information they can provide on the quality of care provided by maternity services across the country.

The CQC objectives are to encourage more women to:

  • Use the free, independent CQC inspection reports to compare maternity services near them
  • If they’ve recently had a baby to share their experiences with CQC, whether good or bad

More information about the CQC campaign can be found on their web page:
