Services at Basildon, Braintree, Chelmsford, Maldon, and Southend

Their website says:

Our hospitals deliver thousands of babies every year modern, well-equipped maternity units. Our staff are committed to providing high quality maternity care for women and their families during pregnancy, labour and after the birth of their baby.

We support women to have a choice of birthplace, as this has been shown to have a positive effect on the birth experience.

The choice of a home birth or birth in our midwife led birth unit will routinely be offered to women with a straight forward pregnancy (no known complications that may affect pregnancy and the birth). If your pregnancy is not straightforward, it is recommended that, to meet your individual needs you have your baby in our delivery suite. Our maternity services support care both in the community and the hospital.

You can find data about Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust maternity care on the NHS Data Dashboard here (best attempted on a laptop or PC as it’s a pretty big and complicated Power BI interface!):

It’s a bit confusing to begin with! But you select the trust you’re interested in from the drop down, you can look at the various data sets available and see how the trust compares nationally. In the image below, as an example, I’ve selected the NMI+ dataset which looks at how Chesterfield compares with Derby and Burton on User Experience, from 2019.
