The pre, post and neonatal services available across the Partnership are designed to take into account the needs of women who are pregnant, new mothers (with babies under six months old) or those who are breastfeeding.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) Vital Statistics Branch publishes annual files on the number of births and maternities in each local authority in England. The table below shows the number of maternities and live births across Cheshire and Merseyside in 2013. Note that the number of live births is greater than the number of maternities as some maternities may result in twins, triplets etc.
