Please forgive me that I haven’t got round to analysing this Trust’s policies. Turns out that there’s a LOT of Trusts, with a LOT of policies and only one me.

I figure that people might want the policy information as soon as it’s available, so have taken the decision to upload without commentary.

  1. Is there any update policies? I can’t see to access the policy and I’m hoping for a home birth at Leighton BMI is 49 and with my son it was 40 but I was refused a water birth! I don’t want to be fobbed off again!

    1. Hi Iona,

      I’m afraid I’m just one person, running this site in what little spare time I have after running around after two children and a job. There are hundreds of Trusts and it’s simply impossible to keep up with all of them.

      That’s why I wrote this page: https://www.bigbirthas.co.uk/how-to-submit-foi-request/

      If you do get copies of your local policies, please contact me via the form on https://bigbirthas.co.uk/about-big-birtha/contact-big-birtha/ to let me know, and I’ll email back (stops me being inundated with spam!). Then you can send me the documents so I can add them/update the most recent ones here for the benefit of all.

  2. I am pregnant and about to have my baby at Leighton. I have a bmi of 37.5 which places me out of range for having an MLU birth according to the guideline initially the consultant stated no it’s in the guideline. Upon pointing out that guidelines are just that a guide to practice rather than a policy which has to be followed we had a discussion and I am now able to have my baby in the MLU. I couldn’t have done this had I not had access to their policies and guidelines. Knowledge is definitely power so thank you.
