Gloucester Soldiers Memorial Hospital has a maternity unit with two postnatal beds and one birthing room.
This service is able to provide a local, family centred maternity model of care for women with uncomplicated pregnancies in Gloucester and surrounding area.
The Midwives share antenatal care with a general practitioner and one midwife provides continuity of care for each woman throughout their pregnancy, birth and postnatal period. Gloucester Hospital does not have a special care nursery so can only provide care to babies born after 37 weeks.
Preparation for birth and parenting education is provided by the midwives during antenatal visits.
