Maternity Services

If you’re worried about coronavirus, please visit our maternity information site here.

Our Maternity departments at Heartlands, Solihull and Good Hope hospitals provide women with care prior to and throughout pregnancy, delivery and following the birth.

Deciding where to have your baby is a very important decision. We want you to have the best birth experience possible and for you to feel and safe and confident when you are with us.

Your birthing options will depend on which hospital you have chosen to have your baby at and whether your pregnancy is straightforward, but here is an idea of the options available to you.

• Homebirth
• Midwifery Led Unit
• Delivery Suite

You may also have a planned or emergency caesarean section.

Resources
