BaBi Warwick

Welcome to BaBi Warwick!

South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust (SWFT) provides maternity services across the district from Warwick Hospital, along with antenatal clinics at Stratford Hospital and Alcester and Bidford. Over 3000 women choose to birth their babies at SWFT every year, at our Labour Ward, Bluebell Birth Centre or at home, with the support of their midwife.

Born and Bred in Warwick (BaBi Warwick)

Born and Bred in Warwick (BaBi Warwick) aims to assess the health priorities and inequalities in health of families across South Warwickshire. The unique and exciting study will be ongoing to improve health outcomes over time in our region.

This study will aid in the development of shared research by utilising data which is routinely collected by NHS databases. This will then provide insight to improve services used by people living in South Warwickshire. 

Who can join BaBi Warwick?

Any woman who births at Warwick Hospital can join the project, for themselves and their baby. Over the next five years, our goal is to involve as many individuals as we can. If you would like to take part, please ask a midwife about participating in the project.
