Birth & Babies - The New Maternity Unit Appeal

Warwick Hospital wants to ensure women have choice about where they give birth. To support this, a Midwifery Led Unit is being developed on site at the hospital.

South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust has committed to investing £1.5million at Warwick Hospital to provide a new midwife led birthing unit (MLU) for the local community in South Warwickshire, offering more choice to women and their families where to give birth.

The development of this new unit commences in January 2018 and is due to open in Summer 2018.

This will be the first in our area and it will benefit families across South Warwickshire and beyond.

The Midwifery Led Birthing Centre will enable expectant parents to have their babies in a comfortable, relaxed, homely environment rather than a more clinical setting. The unit is due to open in 2018 and will complement the full Consultant Obstetric Unit which is also based at Warwick Hospital.

The MLU will have 4 birthing rooms each with ensuite facilities, a family snug with kitchenette and dining area, an therapy room and a triage assessment room.

Help support Warwickshire’s new maternity unit

To ensure the new Midwifery Led Unit is the best it can be there is a £200,000 fundraising appeal. The money raised from this will go towards enhancements that NHS funds can’t provide.

Whether it’s £5 or £50 your money will help us…

  • Buy special baby cribs and stands, rather than standard plastic cots
  • Provide birthing pools for every room
  • Upgrade furnishings to make the unit feel like a home-from-home
