Save Crowborough Birthing Centre

Please save the Crowborough Birthing Centre.

Why is this important?

The Crowborough Birthing Centre was the first midwife led birthing centre in the country. It is much valued by all the mothers in the area. Unfortunately because of the problems in the Eastbourne NHS Trust the Crowborough unit keeps being closed temporarily and was under threat of total closure. Not only does the unit provide something approaching a normal home birth it is also very cost effective.

Because of the threats of closure there has been moves to transfer the unit to the Pembury hospital under the Maidstone NHS Trust where the future of the unit would be more secure.
