Maternity visiting guidance

We're committed to ensuring that we provide high quality care whilst keeping women, pregnant women, pregnant people, babies, their families, and our people safe.

The nominated visitors to the postnatal ward should be the same two people as the named birth partners.

To comply with local and national infection control policies and to ensure the safety of everyone present, partners/companion will need to adhere to the following:

Please note

  • Children are not allowed to attend any appointments either in the hospital or community setting or inpatient visits in Maternity at this current time
  • If a woman requires an assisted delivery or transfer to Maternity theatres only one named birthing partner can be present due to limited space in Delivery and Maternity recovery rooms
