The South East Coast Ambulance Service (SECAmb) will be joining the national ambulance strikes taking place on Monday 20 February.
This strike will have a significant impact on emergency call response times. Due to the shortages in ambulance staff and increased risk for mothers and babies, we have made the difficult decision to suspend home births from 00:01 Monday 20 February until 14:00 Tuesday 21 February 2023.
Please speak to your community midwife for further information and support.
