Ulster Hospital

Maternity Unit

 The Ulster Hospital Maternity Unit is situated to the west of the site in a new facility which opened to patients in August 2007.

The new three story building provides purpose built state-of-the-art accommodation for mothers and newborn babies as well as much needed office space for staff and a new play area for children.

We serve a large area which runs from Newcastle to East Belfast and the Ards Peninsula. We have approximately 4,500 births per year in the Trust with around 4000 of these happening at the Ulster Maternity Unit. The remainder occurs in Lagan Valley and Downpatrick Midwifery Led Units. We also offer low risk women the option of having their baby at home.


While using our facilities we aim to:

  • Provide care, tailored to suit your needs, supporting you to make informed choices that are respected
  • Provide a quality service securing safety for your and your baby during the childbearing process
  • Provide a friendly courteous atmosphere throughout the unit
  • To ensure privacy and dignity for all mothers
