Obstetric Units (Labour wards)

Obstetric units are based in hospitals that provide 24-hour services including medical, obstetric, neonatal and anaesthetic care. Although care is provided by a team of people, obstetricians (doctors) who specialise in birth) lead care if you are at high risk of complications during labour and birth. Midwives also provide care to all women in an obstetric unit and lead your care if you have a straightforward pregnancy and birth.
