Midwife with mother and newborn baby

The RBH is one of the biggest maternity units in the area offering a comprehensive maternity service where almost 6,000 babies are born every year. We cover a large area in West Berkshire from Lambourne in the West to Bracknell in the East.

Please note that due to possible latex allergies of patients, visitors and staff, visitors to the maternity wards are asked only to bring foil balloons as gifts; latex balloons are not acceptable.
