We are proud of our maternity services and the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital Maternity team strives to deliver the highest standards of care to all women and their families. Women’s choice is at the top of our agenda and we support mothers deliver their babies in a range of ways.
We care for more than 5,000 mothers and babies each year and provide all aspects of obstetric and midwifery care, from before birth (antenatal) to birth and after delivery (postnatal).
Our expert team of midwives and doctors work hard to give you the care and support you need, to have for a safe and satisfying birth. Every woman has her own ideas about how she would like her baby to be born – whether at home or in hospital – we do our best to help you achieve this.
