There is a maternity unit in both Antrim and Causeway Hospital. At both of our inpatient facilities there is a team of doctors, midwives and support staff who will provide care which is tailored to meet the needs of the women and their families who use our maternity service. There is also a dedicated team of community midwives who will provide a full range of midwifery care to women who live within the Northern Trust.
