Welcome to our maternity services. We are committed to caring for you as an individual and working in partnership with you to meet your needs. We sincerely hope you will find your pregnancy and the birth of your baby a positive and fulfilling experience.

The maternity web pages contain lots of information about the hospital and community maternity services offered by The Dudley Group.

If you have any questions or concerns, please talk to one of our midwives or matrons.

Please use the links to the left of this page for information about our maternity services.

Our pregnancy notes are now electronic. Your Community Midwife will set up a portal for you to access all of the documentation about your pregnancy.  The portal web address is https://patientportal.dgft.nhs.uk/spp

Temporary changes to our maternity services due to COVID-19

As a nation, we have been asked to follow government instructions on social isolation. These rules apply to our staff as well as to all those we care for, so, alongside other NHS organisations across the country, we have implemented some temporary changes to our maternity services. Please click here for more information.

Here at The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust we fully understand the importance of women having the support of a partner or companion during key appointments and scans. We are pleased that from Monday 19 April 2021 support partners may attend all appointments and scans in our antenatal clinic. For information regarding maternity lateral flow tests, click here.
