Welcome to Calderdale & Huddersfield NHS Maternity Services
We know that having a baby can be an exciting time, but also a time when you have lots of questions. Our aim is to provide you with high-quality, safe care that meets your individual needs and that of your baby. Whether you chose to have your baby at home, in one of our birth centres or on our labour ward we want you to have the best possible birth experience.
We hope our website helps you to plan your care during pregnancy, birth and beyond. We would like to thank local women who have contributed to developing these pages through our Maternity Voices Partnership Group.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic some of our services have been affected and arrangements may change at short notice. We will keep you informed when this happens and we will post service updates on our Facebook page.
Before you attend for any care (hospital or community)
PLEASE do not attend if you have any symptoms of Covid-19 or are in self isolation due to a family member being infected. If you think you are in labour or need to attend the hospital for any other unplanned care you should PHONE first so that we can assess the circumstances and if necessary meet you at the door along with protective clothing.
If you have a clinic, scan or midwife appointment arranged and you are feeling well, it is important that you DO attend unless we notify you by phone (often the day before) of alternative arrangements. Some routine appointments will be conducted by telephone or video call to reduce risk of spread.
Please follow the following links to the latest detailed information on Covid-19 and pregnancy.
