Home Birth Service

We have a dedicated homebirth team. The option of home birth will be discussed at the time of your first booking appointment. If you are planning to have your baby at home you can self refer to the team by emailing rbft.homebirthteam@nhs.net or ask your community midwife to make a referral. Once we have received your details we endeavour to make contact within 7 working days. After this time we will allocate you a named midwife, and we will make arrangements to see you at home for your antenatal care. A detailed discussion will take place from 34-36 weeks regarding having your baby at home.
