The Delivery Suite is open 24 hours a day. We have 9 rooms, including two beds for high-dependency women. There is also a multi-functional, 5-bedded bay for the induction of labour or women in early labour.
You will be advised to have your baby in a consultant-led unit if you have certain medical conditions, have experienced problems in a previous pregnancy, or if complications arise during this pregnancy.
The team includes midwives, obstetric doctors, neonatal doctors and anaesthetists. We actively encourage normal labour and birth but recognise that some women require medical intervention in order to achieve a safe outcome. In labour you will be admitted on one of our en-suite labour rooms and receive one-to-one care from a named midwife.
We also have one birthing pool on Delivery Suite. There is a 24-hour epidural service and our obstetricians and anaesthetists provide the highest standard of care to mothers and their babies during labour.
Our dedicated maternity theatre is used when an instrumental or caesarean is required. We know this can be a difficult time but our friendly team will continue to support you throughout so the birth of your baby in whatever circumstance remains a positive and rewarding experience.
