At Barnsley Hospital we have approximately 3,000 babies born each year in our Maternity Unit and have a dedicated team of midwives, doctors and staff to support you with your choices in pregnancy.

We want to make sure you have a happy and healthy pregnancy and our website aims to share lots of information to prepare and support you through this exciting journey, ensuring you are well informed and have the latest advice at your fingertips.

If you would like to have a tour of our maternity unit or birthing centre, please follow this link.

Our website is split into three main areas

  1. Antenatal (the period throughout pregnancy until you give birth)
  2. Birth (baby’s birthday)
  3. Postnatal (the period immediately following the birth)

In order to give the best possible care we have a team of over 140 midwives working alongside doctors, sonographers, physiotherapists, midwifery support workers and auxiliaries.
