Maternity at Frimley Health and Care
For current information about Covid-19, including advice about appointments, vaccination advice, our recommendations for rapid lateral flow testing and our hospital's visiting policy, please see our Covid-19 FAQs information leaflet.
At Frimley Health, we are proud to offer high-quality maternity services with a woman-centred focus. We support approximately 9500 expectant mothers a year who come to us from across Hampshire, Surrey, East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire.
In addition to the community setting, we provide maternity care at Frimley Park Hospital or Wexham Park Hospital. Both our sites offer a wide variety of services including co-located midwifery led centres, for women with uncomplicated pregnancies, to specialist services for women with more complex needs who require a multi professional approach. Regardless of which hospital you choose, you can be confident that you will be at the centre of a supportive and safe service. Your care will be provided by staff that strive to reflect our trust values: facing the future, committed to excellence and working together. We look forward to supporting you and your baby during this unique and exciting time.
Our goal is for you to feel informed and empowered during your pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatal period so your experience is the very best it can be. Our job is to provide you with all of the information you need to make the right decisions for yourself and your care. Whilst keeping you safe, we appreciate and value the importance of your experience. To help you make decisions about your birth options, choices and preferences our clinical guidelines are available for you to access to help you understand our recommended pathways of care.
If you would like to have your baby with us, please complete the online pregnancy notification form for the hospital you would like to attend, by clicking on the 'Notify us of your new pregnancy' button above. We encourage you to do this as early as possible to ensure that your first screening and ultrasound appointment is not delayed. You do not need to see your GP first.
|Providing care that is inclusive, non-judgemental and responsive to every individual’s needs, wishes and identity, is always our priority. We want everyone, regardless of gender-identity, disability, sexual orientation, race, colour, religion, age, or social circumstance, to feel cared for and respected. Contact us to discuss how we can support you and your family, to ensure you feel safe and respected during your pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.|
