According to this page on the APP web site: your nearest MBU is at Wythenshawe hospital.

Sorry it's not better news.


Hi missybaby18, this page from the Maternal Mental Health Alliance Campaign has a map with all UK MBUs and their contact details I hope this may help you find your nearest one.

If you or a family member are feeling unwell and potentially in need of a bed at the moment I hope you are getting the support you need? If you are concerned for risk in future pregnancies you will get lots of support and ideas on the forum.

Let us know if you need any more help.

Best wishes

I am so pleased to find out that there are in fact three MBU's in Somerset now...Sabine


Hi I hope you have found the information you need from the replies on here - including the directions to the two links. Do come back with any other questions or concerns you have.


Hi hope you are okay and getting any help you need. I live in Warrington and there are no mother and baby units here. As the other posts have said the nearest one is at Wythenshawe hospital near Manchester airport which is where I went when I was ill. If you have any queries please don't hesitate to get in touch. Take care

Hello, I also live in Warrington. This probably won't be much help. I had PPP in 1990 and fortunately there was a MBU at Winwick Hospital, which was inbetween Warrington and Newton le Willows. Winwick Hospital was demolished many years ago and is now a housing estate. I remember the care I received there. I do hope the information on this forum is helpful to you and you get all the care you need.

No there are no units there cause there I used to live but there nearest ones to u would Manchester Stafford or Nottingham as they are very hard to get a bed they would try these units
