Maternity Services

The Maternity services team at Beta Care is committed to providing safe, high-quality, accessible and equitable care to women. This commitment is to both high-quality midwife-led services in low-risk cases and excellence in maternal and fetal medicine for women with known risk factors at booking, or those who develop complications in pregnancy. We encourage women to access maternity services as early as possible in pregnancy, as the evidence suggests that early access to maternity services can improve outcomes for women and their babies. Beta Care offers midwife-led care, shared care and consultant-led care.

Conditions treated.

We offer services to suit all pregnant women and their families. Midwifery and obstetric services work side by side to ensure all women and unborn babies receive a rapid and seamless transition to senior medical or midwifery care should the need arise.

Patient support services

Each pregnant woman is assigned a named midwife throughout her pregnancy.

Patient aftercare

After the birth of your baby, you will be encouraged to go home soon if you and your baby are well and you have no complications. The community midwifery team will continue to provide midwifery care at home. If you are not going straight home from the labour ward or birth centre, you and your baby will be cared for in one of the following areas:

  • Postnatal wards– Most women and their babies are admitted to the postnatal wards. Women who have had a straightforward birth and whose babies are well can expect to stay between six and 24 hours. If you have had a caesarean section your stay in hospital will be a bit longer (usually between 3 and 4 days).
  • Transitional care– This is for babies who require extra care but are well enough not to be admitted to the neonatal unit. Care is provided for mothers and babies together by our midwives and neonatal staff.
  • Neonatal unit– Some babies (approximately one in ten) require care in the neonatal unit after birth. Often parents are aware of this before birth, however sometimes it can be unexpected. Babies admitted to the neonatal unit are cared for by a team of highly specialised medical team.
