Leeds Maternity Strategy
The Leeds Maternity Strategy 2021-25 was launched in November 2021.
This is a five year plan for the city explaining how people will work together to improve the health and care services we offer to parents-to-be and new parents, to give babies the best start in life.
There are now around 9,500 babies born in Leeds every year, and babies who have the best possible start in life will be more likely to benefit from successful futures. We also know that the coronavirus pandemic has made it more difficult for some babies to have the best start in life, so we want to balance these inequalities out as we re-set and transform services.
As set out in this strategy addressing these health inequalities is a priority for us in Leeds and we will do this by working closely with the communities affected.
