Welcome to the Maternity Department



If you are currently pregnant - Congratulations!

We hope that you find the following information helpful.  

Our maternity services look after pregnant women who live in Hampshire and Portsmouth.  This is a large service caring for more than 6000 women per year.

Useful telephone numbers

Your named midwife will give you contact numbers when she meets you for the first time.

Midwifery advice is available for you at the Mary Rose Unit 24 hours a day, and between 8am and 8pm at the Grange and Blake Maternity Centres.  Please note that you may speak to a Maternity Support Worker and not necessarily a midwife when you call.

Please click here for information on Labour Line, a 24-hour dedicated telephone support and assessment line for women in labour - to contact Labour Line, call 0300 1239001.

Once pregnant, you are able to directly refer yourself to your local centre from 6 weeks as long as you have a confirmed positive pregnancy test, you DO NOT have to see a GP.
