Mat Service for LincsGettign Involved1Maternity News1 
Welcome to the Lincolnshire Maternity Services website. Don't worry if you have been directed here from another CCG website, Lincs East CCG manages this service on behalf of South, South West and West Lincolnshire CCG's.

As part of the Maternity Plan in Lincolnshire we are developing new ways of sharing information with women and their families. Our aim is to enable you to make decisions about your care supported by up-to-date relevant information.

We have launched this website which we hope will support you in making those choices and will also keep you up-to-date with the transformation plans, as well as enabling you to hear from staff involved in the services and incorporating the voice of the people using the services.

We are keen to hear your views around the content of this site and future developments.


Please return regularly as we will continue to develop the site and add additional content. This first phase concentrates on providing information for those who are pregnant. Phase 2 will offer much more information around;

  • I want to become pregnant
  • Antenatal Care
  • Labour Care
  • Postnatal Care
  • Health information and advice for new-borns through to pre-school age
  • I want to avoid falling pregnant
