Southmead Hospital Charity - Supporting Maternity

Many parents choose to support Maternity Services at Southmead through fundraising or donations to mark the birth of their child or as a thank you for the care they received.

Fundraising and donations to maternity through Southmead Hospital Charity contribute to projects like these which have already made a huge difference to mums and babies.

Improving facilities - improving labour and post-labour wards create better environments for mums and babies. Last year the charity funded a £120,000 new family room. New equipment like birthing pools and ongoing general refurbishments are now needed.

Balloon Mural - Since 2016, our balloon mural has taken pride of place in the Mendip Ward with hundred of families adding a balloon to celebrate the arrival of their children in return for a donation to maternity services. Our Charity is planning to refresh and improve its appearance to encourage more families to join the mural and more donations that will support parents, babies and the staff that care for them. If you're an existing supporter and would like to know more about the plans, please get in touch with Sophie on We hope to welcome new families to the mural in early 2024, with more information coming soon.
