State of the art maternity theatre

This state-of-the-art maternity theatre was officially opened in 2021. This new theatre and its post-operative room put parents welcoming their baby into the world at the heart of their design with attractive and calming decor. You might come here if an assisted delivery is required or to have a caesarean section in order to achieve a safe outcome.

Choosing to have a caesarean section

If you are thinking about choosing to have a caesarean section when there is not a medical reason to do so please talk to your midwife who will be able to arrange appointments for you to talk with other health professionals. Your doctor and midwife will be able to explain the risks and the benefits of a caesarean section compared with a vaginal birth. They will ensure you have the right support and information to help you choose the right birth for you and your family.
