Lancashire Teaching Hospitals aims to provide a range of welcoming, relaxed, comfortable, and supportive environments for you and your family.

We are proud to offer four places of birth:

  • Chorley Birth Centre (Freestanding Birth Centre)

  • Preston Birth Centre (Alongside Birth Centre)
  • Delivery Suite (Obstetric Unit)
  • Home

Childbirth is a major life event and our services are committed to the promotion of a positive life experience, which enhances the long term physical and emotional wellbeing of you and your family.

You and your birth companion(s) are involved in all aspects of care to enable you to make informed choices, feel safe, confident and empowered.

You will be cared for by midwives with the support of maternity support workers, with the help of obstetricians, anaesthetists and neonatologists as required.

All our maternity team provide high quality, evidence-based care, supporting you with competence and confidence.
