Your birth, your choice
The National Maternity Review Better Births Report sets out a five-year view for maternity services across England. Better Births outlines a vision for safe and efficient models of maternity care – reflecting women’s choices and offering continuity of care.
NHS, local councils and partner organisations are working together across Lancashire and South Cumbria to make sure all women, their babies and their families experience safe, kind, compassionate and personalised care, and to make sure they can access support that is centred on their needs and circumstances.
The partners involved with Better Births Lancashire and South Cumbria want to develop innovative new services to make sure you are well supported and informed at every stage of your pregnancy, enabling you to make decisions about your care which are best suited to you and your family.
Our vision is of a maternity and newborn service where women and their family experience safe, kind, compassionate and personalised care, with choices including home-birth, home-from-home birth centre settings and delivery suites across Lancashire and South Cumbria.
