Maternity visiting

In line with guidance and advice from NHS England and consideration by our Senior Medical experts, you should expect the following visiting restrictions in maternity when visiting our hospital:

  • Two birth partners allowed for Delivery Suite and the Midwifery Led Birthing Unit
  • One birth supporter can remain on the ward to support overnight. Adult visiting between 3pm and 6pm. Siblings welcome during these visiting hours also. No other children are permitted on the ward. 2 visitors per bed space during this time.
  • Ward quiet time is between 1pm and 3pm. There are to be no supporters or visitors on the ward during this time. If the partner leaves the ward after 9.30pm, re entry will not be permitted until 7.30am unless you are visiting a baby on NICU.
  • Birth partner or supporters can attend all community midwifery antenatal and postnatal clinic appointments.
  • One support person may attend for hospital appointments. For example, Maternity Assessment Unit and Antenatal Clinic.  Please be aware that children are not permitted to attend ultrasound scan appointments.
