Welcome to Maternity by Nicola Parry – Head of Midwifery
Your pregnancy, your choice
Welcome to our Maternity Department. At Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust we know that pregnancy can be an exciting but daunting time for women and their partners. There are many choices to make and questions to answer which is why we have filmed a number of videos to help you and your family have the best possible experience at this special time — and hopefully answer some of your questions.
We offer both antenatal, intrapartum (labour) and postnatal care for high and low risk women in the community and hospital setting. Women who are high risk will have care led by a Consultant Obstetrician and will deliver on the Delivery Suite. Women who are low risk will have Midwifery-led care and can chose to have a home birth or deliver in the Fylde Coast Birth Centre which has no medical intervention.
Please browse through this site and find out about the Maternity care which is right for you and your family.
