The Duchess of Kent Unit for Women & Newborn Babies

self-refer to maternity   Antenatal classes

We provide maternity services at Hillingdon Hospital and in the community setting, providing maternity support for over 4,000 mothers and babies each year in all aspects of obstetric and midwifery care.

We aim to provide the best possible experience for mothers, babies and families, and are proud that so many women return to us for second and subsequent births, and also recommend us to family and friends. 

The majority of women experience very normal pregnancies and birth journeys and we have a full range of options for maternity care. As well as our fantastic midwifery-led care we also provide an excellent obstetric model of care to include specialist support for more complex pregnancies and health conditions with an excellent fetal medicine unit.
