The Royal Berkshire hospital maternity unit serves the area of Reading and West Berkshire, offering a comprehensive maternity service where almost 5,000 babies are born every year.
We aim to provide outstanding, personalised care for all women and their families, from our dedicated team of midwives, obstetric doctors and the wider professional team, throughout pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.
We encourage women with uncomplicated pregnancies to have their babies at home, with our specialist homebirth team, or on our home-from-home Rushey midwifery led unit. However it is your choice where to give birth. Our delivery suite offers care for women who require additional monitoring and obstetric and anaesthetic care, whilst providing comfortable, en-suite birth rooms and equipment to facilitate active labour and birth.
