Welcome to the Maternity Service

We provide a wide range of specialist services here in Leicester delivering around 10,000 babies each year, at hospital and at home.

Midwives are key to your pregnancy care. Your midwife will have regular contact with you throughout your pregnancy journey, supporting you and answering all of your questions.

We have specialist maternity and midwife-led units at the Royal Infirmary and the General Hospital, a midwife-led unit at St Mary’s Hospital in Melton Mowbray and a dedicated home birth team. 

Services include:

  • Antenatal Clinics including Consultant, Specialist, Midwife and Nurse Led Clinics.
  • Maternity Assessment Units where women with problems who are not in labour are assessed.
  • Midwife led birth centres staffed by midwives and maternity care assistants.
  • Two delivery suites staffed by midwives, doctors, anaesthetists and maternity care assistants.
  • St Mary's Midwife-led Birth Centre.
  • Home birth team.

Every year there will be some babies that need extra care in our Neonatal Unit. We have a Neonatal Unit at the Royal Infirmary and a Special Care baby unit at the General Hospital. At these units, we provide intensive care, high dependency care and transitional care when needed. Click here to go to the Neonatal website.
