Your delivery and care options

You have a number of options for where you can choose to birth your baby, whether at one of our hospital sites or from home. There are also other wards and clinics that will be a part of your maternity journey with us.

Rowan Suite Hartlepool

The Rowan Suite is a midwifery-led maternity unit at the University Hospital of Hartlepool for those deemed low risk during pregnancy.

Maternity Unit with Delivery Suite

Our delivery suite on ward 18 and 19 includes the low risk midwifery-led ‘Oak Suite’ and our consultant-led obstetric unit if you have risk factors identified throughout your pregnancy.

Home birth

A home birth may just be the most special moment if your life, your midwife will discuss the option with you to ensure a home birth is suitable for you.

Maternity Assessment Unit

We have two maternity assessment units at both our Stockton and Hartlepool hospitals. The departments provide care to antenatal women from 14 weeks onwards and into the postnatal period.

Special Care Baby Unit

The special care baby unit at the University Hospital of North Tees provides specialist medical treatment and care to hundreds of premature and sick babies every year.
