Giving birth

The maternity team at West Hertfordshire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust takes pride in ensuring mode of birth and place of birth discussions are informed by scientific evidence.

People have the right to receive personalised information and care that meet their individual needs. To achieve this, our midwives, obstetricians and multidisciplinary team members will closely work with you to support your birth preferences.

However and wherever you choose to give birth, we will be here to support you.
