Bump

We’re working together in Birmingham and Solihull to ensure every baby has the best possible start in life. As one of two local maternity providers we are proud to be part of the Birmingham and Solihull United Maternity and Newborn Partnership (Bump), alongside other NHS organisations, the two local authorities and voluntary organisations, united by our vision for our local maternity system where:

Every woman will be empowered to access consistent, world-class and holistic care right for them, their baby and their family

Every year, Birmingham and Solihull welcome more than 18,500 babies, and we know that the numbers of babies born are likely to increase over the next few years. Our population is also very diverse, with many factors impacting the support mums and babies require at different stages of their pregnancy journey. Ensuring we are able to not only meet the needs of every woman, baby and family but also exceed those needs, is why we have set out to form a local maternity system, where there are no organisational barriers to care, recognising our efforts and resources are best spent together.

What can you expect from Bump?

We’re still working through our plans for our local maternity system for Birmingham and Solihull. We aim to make some real differences to the way we organise and deliver our services to achieve better outcomes for women, babies and families.

Bump aims to introduce :

  • A single point of access for all maternity referrals making sure you have access to the right care from day one, through your dedicated midwife
  • Dedicated Community hubs – bringing midwifery and specialist care to convenient locations and
  • A host of additional services, including online antenatal courses and much more…
