Little Feet Appeal

Support us to give birth to new beginnings at the L&D

Two little feet surrounded by two sets of hands to form a heart shapeThe vision for the new Maternity Services is to create warm, inviting spaces so that patients and their families feel safe and comfortable throughout their maternity journey.

The Maternity Team at Luton & Dunstable University Hospital (L&D) support more than 5,000 mothers and babies each year. They offer care in aspects of obstetrics and midwifery care, from before birth (antenatal), during birth and after delivery (postnatal).

The journey you take with Maternity Services can be one of the most important hospital experiences. Pregnancy is not just exciting, but can also be very scary and unknown. We feel the surroundings are an important part of this journey and can make a huge difference alongside the care you receive.
