About us

Glass sculptureSaint Mary's Hospital provides full maternity care for women including pre-conceptual counselling, antenatal care, delivery and postnatal care.  This care is provided by obstetricians (doctors who specialise in the care of pregnant women) and midwives with areas of expertise in a particular field.

Although the majority of women we care for are fit and healthy, we have many specialist clinics to look after women with complex medical problems. These include clinics caring for women with diabetes, heart problems, HIV, blood disorders, joint disorders, kidney problems and high blood pressure, obesity, and also for women at risk of problems in their babies (fetal medicine, placental problems and preterm delivery). The teams caring for the women are multi-disciplinary and include midwives, healthcare support workers, physiotherapists, anaesthetists, clinical geneticists and theatre practitioners, to name but a few.

Our Maternity Service is a regional tertiary referral centre for Genetics and Fetal Medicine and we have a co-located Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to care for babies who need additional support after birth.

The unit includes:

  • Antenatal clinic
  • Fetal Medicine Unit
  • Ultrasound
  • Delivery Unit
  • Midwifery Led Unit
  • Antenatal Assessment Unit
  • 1 antenatal and 2 postnatal wards
  • Access to theatres at any given time.

We also provide antenatal out-patient services at Trafford District General Hospital and Salford Royal Hospital Foundation Trust as well as a standalone Midwifery Led Unit at Salford.

Our service was featured in the television programme 'The Midwives' shown on BBC2 in 2012 and 2013.
