Our team

Our maternity services will provide care for you from the moment you find out that you are pregnant.

While you're pregnant you will have a nominated professional lead which will be a midwife or an obstetrician. Our aim is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of you and your baby, and that you have a positive pregnancy and birth experience at West Herts Hospitals NHS Trust.

Our maternity service is led by:
