The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust


Leeds Maternity Care

Becoming a parent is an important and exciting experience and our purpose is to ensure you have the right maternity support and care around you. In Leeds we offer a range of choices and services in hospital, community and home settings.

Our philosophy is

Families receiving maternity care in Leeds will be listened to and experience care that is safe, responsive and respectful to their needs and wishes throughout pregnancy and birth through to the Early Start Team. Every woman will have a named midwife. Ideally we would like to provide your care as early as possible in your pregnancy, with the first contact by 10 weeks.

How do I make my first appointment with a midwife?

You can do this by:

If you have been unable to make an appointment via your GP or Children's Centre, please click here and compete a self-referral form.

The midwife will discuss the care pathways that would be available to you at your first appointment. You will be cared for by a midwife or maternity team depending on your individual needs.

If you are concerned about bleeding in early pregnancy, please contact The Early Pregnancy Unit (EPU) on 0113 2065473 or Acute Gynaecology Unit on 0113 2065724.

We recommend that you download the free Baby Buddy app; it has lots of useful information about pregnancy and beyond.
