RUH's Central Delivery Suite is renamed Bath Birthing Centre

Bath Birthing Centre The Central Delivery Suite at the Royal United Hospital, Bath has been re-born; changing its name to the Bath Birthing Centre.  

It’s still the same great team, providing the same range of services, in the same location, only the name has changed.

Di Dorrington, Maternity Matron at the RUH explains:

“Changing the name may seem a trivial thing, but mothers tell us the use of positive language can make a big difference to how they feel.  We want to promote the positivity of birth and help make new mothers feel more comfortable and confident.  

“Of course, each experience is different but regardless of the level of obstetric and midwifery support required for each mother and baby, our message is that babies are ‘born’, not ‘delivered’.
