Maternity Services

Welcome to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Maternity Services page

The Maternity department is a shared Midwife and Consultant Service. Our Maternity Services covers King's Lynn and surrounding areas. We have a co-located midwife led birthing unit which is staffed by the community midwifery teams. Lifestyle and existing health conditions pre-pregnancy and during pregnancy could mean you are placed on a high risk pathway. Dependant on your personal care plan, you may be required to attend additional appointments throughout your pregnancy to allow us to monitor you and your baby.

Your pregnancy journey is an exciting experience and we would like to ensure your care and support is right for you.

During your pregnancy we will provide Antenatal care at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, and at your local community midwifery team hub. During your antenatal visits you will be offered blood tests, measurements and scans to make sure that you and your baby are well.

You can make an appointment by contacting our Booking Coordinator on 01945 469259 or email Kerrie.Dorman@nhs.net between 8am and 4pm Monday to Friday. Once you are booked please read the Screening Tests for you and your baby leaflet, this contains important information about the screening choices you will have during and after your pregnancy.

Your Norfolk and Waveney Local Maternity and Neonatal System is committed to ensuring you have access to high quality maternity care, wherever you choose to have your baby. Please download this leaflet to find out more about the options available to you.
