Maternity services

We deliver around 4,000 babies every year in our modern, well-equipped maternity unit, part of the women's and children's directorate.

Staff at Southend University Hospital maternity service are committed to providing high quality maternity care for women and their families during pregnancy, labour and after the birth of their baby.

We support women to have a choice of birthplace, as this has been shown to have a positive effect on the birth experience.  The choice of a home birth or birth in our midwife led birth unit will routinely be offered to women with a straight forward pregnancy ( no known complications that may affect pregnancy and the birth).

If your pregnancy is not straightforward, it is recommended that, to meet your individual needs you have your baby in our delivery suite. 

Our maternity services support care both in the community and the hospital. Generally this is for women who live in the Southend and Castle Point areas, however, we do also welcome women from outside these boroughs.

Please note that the Maternity Voices Partnership will be relaunched shortly, and we will provide details when they have been confirmed.
