You can give birth in a different trust if you want. You are free to chose your hospital (though in certain areas this is more difficult if the hospital is exceptionally busy but this seems to be restricted to London).

It can be a bit of a ball ache as different trusts have different policies and you will still have the same community midwives (your midwife might be being difficult as its more complex for her to deal with another authority she's not familiar with).

she gave me contact no for the trust who refused as can be dealt with by local authority.
advised to try hospital had my son in which again a different authority don't know if they will have same reaction and only had a general email address so waiting to hear back now
