New Birthing Unit at Norfolk Hospital

A brand new State of the art midwifery led birthing unit (MLBU) was officially opened at the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston today.

The new MLBU is the first of its kind in Norfolk and will offer a relaxed environment for women during labour and birth.

The unit has a reception area and three en-suite birthing rooms, with two of these offering the chance to have a water birth. There is also a small sitting room where food and drink is available.
