NHS Shetland Maternity Unit

We are the first point of contact for women with positive pregnancy test. We provide antenatal clinics in the hospital and at local health centres.

Additional antenatal, intrapartum and postnatal care is provided in the maternity department and at home.

We also offer hypnobirthing, acupuncture, parenthood, aquanatal and weight maintenance sessions. 3 midwives have had additional training in fertility services.


Information on termination of pregnancy and available support services

If you think you need a termination or would like some more information about this then please phone: 07500102455 and leave a message. A member of staff will call you back when available.

If you require treatment or advice urgently, then you are also welcome to call the Maternity Department on: 01595743012 and ask to speak to a member of staff from the termination of pregnancy service.

We work closely with colleagues at NHS Grampian to deliver this service and so you may also find the information on their website to be useful.

Your information will be treated confidentially, therefore please contact us if you need more information or support.
