Maternity services

Welcome to Maternity Services in the Southern Health and Social Care Trust

As soon as you have a positive pregnancy test you can now refer yourself directly for maternity care via your midwife Self Referral Form Maternity Care.

Becoming a parent is an amazing and exciting experience and our dedicated purpose is to provide you with the highest standard of maternity care and support.

We support over 5,000 expectant mothers and in a typical year deliver 5,100 babies, who come to us from across the Armagh, Dungannon, Banbridge, Craigavon, Newry and Mourne areas.

We offer a friendly, supportive and safe service for women and families and a range of maternity care services in hospital, community and home settings during your important transition to family life.

Our goal is for you to feel informed and empowered during your pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatal period so your experience is the very best it can be. Our job is to provide you with all of the information you need to make the right decisions for yourself and your care. Whilst keeping you safe, we appreciate and value the importance of your experience.

This short video will introduce you to our maternity services, throughout the community and from our 2 Acute Hospitals – Daisy Hill and Craigavon Area Hospital and it will give you an idea of what to expect.

In order to ensure safety of all patients and staff, access to the doors of the maternity block are locked from 8pm to 8am every evening. This means that the only access to the hospital between these hours is via the main entrance beside Emergency Department. All other access points within the hospital will be locked. Maternity department is signposted from the main foyer of the hospital.

In the event you are travelling by car and you are bleeding heavy or you think your baby is going to be born imminently please phone the midwife in maternity assessment unit on 028 375 61830 and every effort will be made to meet you at the main entrance
