Maternity Services

Women's and Children's Health

Our Maternity Services provides a full range of maternity care, both in the community, at Cossham midwife led Birth Centre, Southmead Hospital Bristol midwife led Birth Suite and in Southmead Hospital Bristol Central Delivery Suite, to women within Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

More than 6,000 babies are born with us every year and our dedicated midwives, doctors, maternity healthcare assistants and support staff are committed to giving you personalised care of the highest standard.

We have a range of choices for place of birth, including:

  • Home birth
  • Cossham Birth Centre stand-alone midwifery led unit
  • Mendip Birth Centre, Southmead Hospital Bristol
  • Central Delivery Suite, Southmead Hospital Bristol

Our facilities offer en-suite bathrooms, birth pools, overnight partner stays, parking on all sites, full range of complementary therapies and pain relief. We have a 24hr assessment unit available.

We were awarded a grant from the Department of Health, which allowed us to upgrade our facilities to provide enhanced privacy and dignity for all women and families coming to maternity at Southmead Hospital Bristol.
