Maternity

Midwifery

The maternity services at Bedford Hospital are located in Cygnet Wing, our dedicated Women and Children’s unit. Our skilled and professional midwifery and obstetric team seek to ensure that you have the best possible experience during your pregnancy, delivery and postnatal period.
More than 3,200 babies are delivered on an average each year. We take great pride in supporting individual choice and providing the highest standard of care for women and their families.

We are committed to meeting the Care Quality Commissions standards and encourage your active participation through feedback. At 36 weeks gestation you will be given a contact number by your community midwife. We would encourage you to respond to a few short questions via text to provide your feedback.

Here at Bedford we have a skilled and professional maternity team, consisting of:

  • Midwives
  • Maternity Care Assistants
  • Registered Nurses
  • Obstetricians
  • Paediatricians
  • Anaesthetists
  • Operating Department Practitioners
  • Supervisors of Midwives
  • Clerical support staff

They all take pride in the standard and quality of care offered to women and their partners. As a teaching hospital, we also provide training places for medical students, student midwives and student nurses.
