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:
- Patients attending antenatal appointments and all ultrasound scans will be permitted to have one accompanying visitor attend with them providing they can show evidence of a negative Covid-19 test taken within the last 72 hours
- One support partner may visit Cley (antenatal) or Blakeney (postnatal) ward per day between 12–6pm.
- You may have one birthing partner, who can be with you from the point of admission to the Delivery Suite or the Midwifery Led Birthing Unit.
- If you are having a planned caesarean section, your partner may attend with you from admission until 6pm on the day of your birth and then visit on the postnatal ward 12-6pm any subsequent days.
- If you are admitted for induction of labour, one partner may attend the initial assessment and then visit Cley Ward 12-6pm any subsequent days.
