Seacombe Birth Centre - The Highfield Team

The Highfield Birth Team consists of six  midwives who provide care to women choosing to have their babies at home or in Seacombe Birth Centre.  This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week giving women access to a known midwife throughout their pregnancy, birth and after their baby is born.

Women under the care of the Highfield Birth Team, are also able to choose from a range of suitable locations for the majority of their antenatal appointments, whether that be a local clinic, at home or even at their place of work where appropriate. If you are thinking about a home birth or community birth at Seacombe Birth Centre please ask your midwife to refer you to the Highfield Birth Team.

The Seacombe Birth Centre is found in Wallasey and is a standalone birth centre. You can choose to have your baby at the Birth Centre if your pregnancy is uncomplicated and you have had no serious problems in other pregnancies you may have had.

The Seacombe Birth Centre has one birthing room and a birthing pool and provides a relaxing and calm place for you to be and to welcome your baby into the world.  

You can also contact the team directly by emailing wuth.birthteam@nhs.net or by calling 0151 666 3131 during day time hours. Alternatively, please leave a message on 0151 604 7682 and the team will be in touch as soon as possible.
