Specialist antenatal clinics

We run a number of specialist clinics as a part of our Antenatal Care.

Birth Choices Clinic

The Birth Choices Clinic is led by our consultant midwives and is available for anyone who may wish to birth outside of what would be considered usual guidelines.

The Birth Choices Service has been developed to facilitate Supported Decision Making and develop personalised care and support plans for labour and birth.

Women will receive evidence-based information and support to explore their birth options. If you wish to make an appointment for this clinic please speak to your community midwife.

Birth After Caesarean (BAC) Clinic

The Birth After Caesarean (BAC) Clinic is for anyone who would like more information and support when planning their birth, when they have had a caesarean birth previously.

The aim of this clinic is to help you make an informed choice about the birth of your baby.

Breech Clinic

If, at 36 weeks, a baby is lying bottom or feet down, rather than head down, they are in the 'breech' position and this happens in around four percent of pregnancies as the due date approaches.

You will find out at your 36 week scan if your baby is breech. If this is the case we will write to you offering an appointment to explore your options in our Breech Clinic.

It is natural to be anxious but you will be offered support and the chance to talk about your options.
