Welcome to our maternity services

Your pregnancy journey is an important and exciting experience and we would like to ensure that your maternity care and support is right for you. At Guy's and St Thomas' we offer a wide range of choices and services in hospital, community and home settings.

What care will I receive?

During your pregnancy we provide antenatal care at St Thomas' and at clinics local to you. At these antenatal visits you will have blood tests, measurements and scans to make sure that you and your baby are well. Find out more about antenatal care.

We also provide specialist care for babies who need it and for women with conditions that make their pregnancy more problematic. We are proud to have an expert staff and a wide range of specialist teams - meaning that we can provide care that other hospitals may not be able to offer. 

Once your baby is born, you will be cared for by a team of midwives, support workers and doctors who will help with parenting and feeding. Whether you have your baby at home or in one of our birth centres, we will give you and your baby the best possible start. More about postnatal care.
