For women choosing us to care for them during pregnancy, birth and beyond, we aim to provide high quality maternity care with a personal approach.
Women who choose to come here are cared for by a friendly, experienced team of midwives who, together with their obstetric and paediatric colleagues, strive to achieve excellent outcomes for mothers and babies.
Women can choose to have their babies in the maternity unit or at home.
Please see the Homebirth Page for more information if you are considering a homebirth or would like to discuss the options available to you.
Team leader: Steph Larcombe Lily Tiller Lyndsay Stevenson Lucy Dibben Florbela Vaz The Acorn team is made up of two specialist midwives, Dawn Sherry and Amelia Ludwig, who care for vulnerable women with additional needs in their pregnancy.
The midwives work in one of four community teams across the area, with a linked midwife providing antenatal clinics for each GP practice either in the surgery itself or in a nearby Children’s Centre.
