Choosing where to have your baby

The Northern Trust Maternity Service provides women with a range of choices for their place of birth which will be discussed at your first appointment.

If you are considering having a home birth, discuss it with your community midwife or GP, who will help you make an informed decision.

If you choose to have your baby in hospital, early in your pregnancy you will be ‘booked’ into the Maternity Unit at either Antrim Area Hospital or Causeway Hospital for the birth. At both hospitals there is a skilled team of midwives, obstetricians, anaesthetists and paediatricians who will care for you and your baby throughout your labour, childbirth and afterwards.

For more information on your choices speak to your community midwife or obstetrician.
