Brief overview

We are committed to personalised care and will try to comply with your wishes as far as is safely possible.

The expectant mother will be looked after in a single room either on Level 13 of the Tower Block at the Royal Sussex County Hospital or on the second floor at the Princess Royal Hospital.

We welcome the partner, close friend or relative who will stay during labour.

Doulas and natural therapists, such as acupuncturists, are welcomed in the Delivery Suite.
