Maternity services UCLH 

We have recently launched new web pages for our maternity services. The new pages are aimed at women and provide lots of useful information about what to expect when you’re expecting and having your baby at UCLH.

Over 6,000 babies are born each year in the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Wing at University College Hospital. Our maternity services offer access to a full range of care options in different settings including home birth, community care, a co-located birth centre and our labour ward with a highly skilled team of midwives and obstetricians – and two dedicated theatres. Visitors to the website can read all about our services, including how to contact their midwife (24 hours a day), watch pregnancy fit tips, and read about parent’s personal experiences to get an idea of what their own care pathway might look like.

Natilla Henry, head of midwifery, said: “For some women, engaging with maternity services can be a little daunting and our web site will be their first interaction with us. The team has worked hard to provide content that parents will find informative and reassuring.

The new pages project our core values and show UCLH as a world class centre for high quality care that is evidenced based and places the woman at the centre of care and with the latest technology for women and their babies in the areas of maternity and neonatal care.”

The website was developed with women and their partners firmly in mind. They were consulted every step of the way to ensure that we were creating a website that they would want to use. Feedback included "The web pages are very clear, helpful and reassuring".

The UCLH communications and the maternity teams worked together using the same approach taken to build our award winning paediatric diabetes web pages (www.uclh.nhs.uk/T1).
