A state-of-the-art maternity centre opened on 8 December 2011 within the new £18.6m St Mary’s Community Healthcare Campus in Milton, which replaces the existing Maternity Centre.
The Portsmouth Maternity Centre is a midwifery-led unit and is staffed by highly experienced midwives and maternity support workers who will offer a relaxed atmosphere to give birth 24 hours a day.
The centre is located on the second floor of block A and will offer antenatal and postnatal clinics, including parent education, breastfeeding workshops and support groups, and two en suite birthing rooms, with one housing a water birth pool.
The Trust is fully committed to providing the highest standard of care for expectant mothers and their babies. The Maternity Centre will act as another birth choice in addition to the already successful range of childbirth choices that are offered for the people of Portsmouth and its surrounding areas; this includes the option of the Mary Rose Maternity Centre and the main maternity unit at Queen Alexandra Hospital, a homebirth, a birth at The Grange Maternity Centre in Petersfield, or a birth at the Blake Maternity Centre in Gosport.
Please feel free to contact the Centre on 023 9268 0135 for more information.
