Maternity Services

Maternity banner

We are extremely proud of our Maternity Services which were rated as 'outstanding' by the Care Quality Commission. We are also delighted to be one of the top ten best NHS maternity departments in England.

More than 4,000 babies were born at Princess Alexandra Hospital last year. Our maternity services were rated as exceptional by the Care Quality Commission in their recent visit and the thank you cards, emails and compliments confirm that new Mums agree. We are delighted to be rated the ninth best NHS maternity service in England - a rating that is still improving year on year.

We offer one to one patient care for all mothers in labour. This is not just our aspiration, it is consistently delivered.

Amenity (hotel style) private rooms are available for an additional fee (please ask your midwife) and our highly rated Saturday parenting courses provide the ideal opportunity for new parents to learn about the birth and first few months of parenthood as well as making new friends that often last a lifetime. 

We offer the opportunity for partners to stay overnight with mother and baby whenever possible. If you would like to see what our maternity unit looks like, please click here to take a tour.
