Map of Maternity Units in Scotland

Depending where you live in Scotland, you'll be offered choices and advice as to where you give birth. You might be offered birth:

• in a midwifery unit (community or alongside) supported by midwives
• at home
• in a hospital (Obstetric Unit) supported by midwives and doctors

Your midwife can help you with any questions you and your partner have. You can also find more information on the NHS Inform website.
