•    Best Maternity hospitalGrimsby Maternity Unit, which opened in July 2004, has won an NCT award for it’s forward thinking attitude and are one of the only UK hospitals that allow Dad’s to stay with their partner and new born.

The Maternity unit at City Hospital Campus, Nottingham, has a patient hotel. Once you’ve given birth the whole family can check in and receive midwife support in those formative days.
