Delivery Suite, Antenatal and Postnatal Wards

Jo Keable, Practice Development MidwifeOur Delivery Suite which has 15 rooms all with access to ensuite bathrooms and one water birth pool. Adjacent to the Delivery Suite are two obstetric operating theatres (one for elective patients and one for emergency patients) and our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

There are 14 antenatal inpatient beds Cley Ward if you are required to remain in hospital before you have your baby. You would usually come to Cley Ward for induction of labour.

There are 32 postnatal inpatient beds on Blakeney Ward where many women stay after having their baby as they require ongoing care either for themselves or their baby. This is usually a short stay of about 2 days, longer in certain circumstances.

When you are ready to go home your care transfers to your community midwifery team and they will visit you the day after you get home and plan ongoing care.
