Birmingham Women’s NHS Foundation Trust

Their website says:

As one of the busiest maternity departments in the UK we take pride in welcoming over 8,000 babies into the world each year.

With the highest standards of healthcare quality and safety, we put you at the centre of your maternity care. It’s important to us that you make decisions about your pregnancy journey and how you want to give birth so that it’s memorable for all the right reasons.

Your care

We provide professional and caring support to thousands of families each year. From the day you find out you are pregnant, we will be there for you and your family, helping you choose how you want to have your baby and how you want to be cared for along the way.

We will offer you a series of antenatal appointments with a midwife, or sometimes an obstetrician – a doctor who specialises in pregnancy and birth. We’ll be with you when you need us throughout your maternity journey.

The team

Our team of experienced midwives, consultant obstetricians and healthcare professionals are on hand to answer all your questions, no matter how big or small, and to help you through your pregnancy and birth. Your care is usually provided by midwives who will sometimes work together with doctors to ensure you have the care you need.

You will have a choice of where you would like to have your baby depending on your preference and specific needs. Whether you choose a homebirth or our Delivery Suite we will be by your side every step of the way.

You can find data about Birmingham Women’s 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, and then 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 Royal Hospital compares with Derby and Burton on User Experience, from 2019.
