NHS Trusts across the south are to receive a share of £25 million to upgrade maternity their units.
Heatherwood & Wexham Park hospital will receive £55,000 while University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust will get nearly £400,000 and the Isle of Wight NHS Trust £200,000.
The Government said the money "will go towards a wide range of projects".
A new arrival in the family is a joyous time but it can present a real challenge for mums and families, particularly those experiencing it for the first time.
"We are now going to see huge improvements to maternity services right across the country - from birthing pools to family rooms and even new midwifery-led units.
"These will make a big difference to the experience mums and families have of NHS maternity services, with more choice and a better environment where women can give birth.
