Maternity Services

Maternity Services at the Norfolk and Norwich are shared between a midwife and consultant service  comprising the following areas:

Blakeney Ward and Cley Ward are our maternity wards (Cley is a shared obstetrics and gynaecology ward).

Our Delivery Suite which has 15 rooms with access to ensuite bathrooms and one water birth pool, and our midwives are trained in water births. Adjacent to the Delivery Suite are two obstetric operating theatres (one for elective patients and one for emergency patients) and our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Our  Midwifery Led Birthing Unit (MLBU) provides women with a “home-from-home” environment in which to give birth. The unit has four birthing rooms, all with en-suite shower rooms.  The rooms are sensitively decorated with soft lighting, audio equipment is available so that women can bring in their own music to create a homely and relaxing atmosphere. There are three birthing pools which women can use for labour and to give birth in if desired.

If you would like to have your baby with us please complete the online self-referral form.

We want you to have a good birthing experience. You can find more information about our services for pregnant women on our department pages including our Patient Information Leaflets.
