Leicester Royal Infirmary Maternity Unit provides care for antenatal and postnatal women, and undertakes over 6,000 deliveries per year.

The hospital has an Antenatal Clinic where high risk women can attend appropriate specialist clinics. There is also a Maternity scanning and Fetal Medicine service and a Maternity Assessment Centre where women with urgent problems can be assessed.

The main Delivery Suite offers a wide range of pain relief methods for use during labour, including the use of mobile epidural, water, gas and air, epidurals, intramuscular opiate injection and TENS machines.

Low risk women booked at the unit can choose to deliver in the Midwife led Birth Centre or have a water birth, in a birthing pool.

This hospital also has a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
