Expectant women and new mothers in East Hampshire now have midwifery on their doorstep with the opening of a Maternity Hub run by the Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust.

On November 4 East Hampshire MP Damian Hinds opened the building by Badgerswood Surgery at Mill Lane in Headley. It hosts an infant feeding support clinic and aims to run ante-natal classes.

Women will receive support from the same team of midwives throughout their pregnancy. Badgerswood patients and women in Bordon, Liphook, Liss, Petersfield, Grayshott and Alton can be referred there.
