The new state-of-the-art centre was created following the demolition of Chorley and South Ribble Hospital’s old maternity unit.

The old unit opened in 1970 and over the decades welcomed thousands of babies into the world.

The new freestanding centre that has replaced it offers active birthing equipment and birthing pools in each of the birth rooms in addition to clinical assessment and education areas for expectant mums.

The FWP-designed specialist facility, which was constructed by contractor D&G, has been described as “an outstanding birth environment for women.”
