Maternity Services

Welcome to our Maternity Services

We employ around 6,000 staff who deliver compassionate care from our two main hospitals, Calderdale Royal Hospital and Huddersfield Royal Infirmary as well as in community sites, health centres and in patients’ homes.

We have a 300 strong team of staff who deliver maternity services 365 days a year across our two sites. We have approximately 5300 births per year. We know that having a baby can be an exciting time, but also a time when you have lots of questions. We hope that you find our website informative and that it helps you to plan your care during pregnancy, birth and beyond. 

Our team of midwives, maternity support workers, obstetricians, anaesthetists, paediatricians, theatre staff, sonographers, domestic staff and catering staff look forward to meeting you and to working with you to help you to make informed choices about your care. Our aim is to provide 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 birth experience.

Our maternity team work with service users and providers across West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership to make sure that women and their families experience care that is safe, responsive and respectful, delivered by high performing teams and in organisations which are well led where innovation and continuous learning are at the heart of all we do. If you would like to learn more about ways in which we work across our Local Maternity System (LMS) please click here.  

If you are pregnant and live in Calderdale and Huddersfield please contact your local community midwifery team as soon as you know you are pregnant so that we can arrange to meet with you and plan your care. The list of Community numbers is can be found on the right hand side under Useful contacts.
