Luton and Dunstable Hospital will be offering more options to mums-to-be at the Midwife Led Birth Unit (MLBU).

The MLBU will be offering new mothers alternative birthing options through its new Maternity Menu.

The unit at the hospital features four en-suite rooms, including a pool room where mothers can choose to experience a home-from-home environment supported by a team of midwives, with the added security of knowing they are on hospital grounds.

Stella Roberts, Consultant Midwife, said: “The launch of our maternity menu reinforces our commitment to offering women a greater choice of birthing options.

“Our expert trained midwifes highlight the benefits of giving birth under midwifery care and ensure all mothers-to-be are well informed about the birthing options available to them at the L&D.”

The hospital is inviting mums-to-be, families and health professionals to find out more about the MLBU at an event on Saturday in the Maternity and Women’s Health building.
