Welcome to Salisbury Hospital Maternity Unit

Whether you are expecting a baby or thinking of starting a family, we are delighted that you are considering Salisbury for your care. We are a small, professional and friendly team currently supporting approximately 2500 mothers per year. Our team of caring midwives and experienced specialist doctors (obstetricians) supported by the team from the Neonatal Unit and other healthcare professionals from across the hospital provide you with comprehensive high quality care.

Our aim is for you to have a safe and fully informed pregnancy and birth experience, resulting in a healthy mother and baby. We like to offer parents a choice of where they give birth. As midwives our priority is to provide high quality care and to promote normal birth. This can be in the Maternity Unit or at home.

Our approach is to be partners in care with all who access the Salisbury maternity service, both within the community and at the hospital and encourage parents to tell us about their needs and expectations. We always involve the parents in any decisions made, keeping you fully informed and involved in your care and supporting you to make the right decisions for you and your baby.
