Maternity Services

At University Hospital Southampton, we’re a centre of excellence for maternity care, providing a comprehensive service and a choice of birth options, including home birth, for about 6,000 women each year from around Southampton.

Take the virtual tour of maternity services.

We’re also a regional centre for fetal and maternal medicine, providing specialist care for women with medical problems during pregnancy, and for those whose baby needs extra care before or around birth.

We’re a leading teaching centre for nursing, midwifery and medical students, and home to the regional centre for neonatal intensive care.
