All rooms within labour ward benefit from a calm, relaxing environment where we provide portable CTG monitoring, aromatherapy and a range of birthing equipment.

We are a friendly team who enjoy challenging ourselves both in and out of work and we benefit from having positive working relationships with all members of the multidisciplinary team.

NHS Forth Valley provides care for approximately 3000 births annually and covers a large geographical area composed of beautiful rural and urban areas.

We are ideally situated between Glasgow and Edinburgh with good transport links to both nearby.
