Maternity Services


We are delighted you are considering using our Maternity Services. Having a baby is an exciting time for a woman and her family and we hope we are able to do everything possible to ensure that you and your partner feel confident, relaxed and safe throughout your pregnancy, birth and beyond.

We provide care to all women in Chester and Ellesmere Port, as well as women who live out of the area who choose to have their care at the Countess of Chester Hospital.

The philosophy of the Maternity Services is to provide each woman with the appropriate care for the well-being of the mother and baby. All women are booked for Midwifery Care unless the risk assessment undertaken at the Booking appointment indicates that medical input is required, and then care will be shared between the Midwife and the Consultant.

To begin your Midwifery Care at the Countess of Chester, call our Booking Hotline on 01244 363487.
