  • Maternity services at UCLH

    We understand that having a baby is one of the most important experiences of your life.

    You will have particular expectations of your birth that are important to you: where you want your baby to be born, who will be with you and the type of care you get.

    For some, engaging with maternity services can be a little daunting and you will want access to appropriate information and safe guidance to help you make informed choices and decisions about your pregnancy.

    The maternity team at UCLH will listen to your hopes and concerns and can suggest helpful and practical ideas to help you.

The Elizabeth Garrett Anderson (EGA) Wing provides comprehensive, high quality care with the latest technology for women and their babies in the areas of gynaecology, maternity and neonatal care. Find out more in the video below.
