Maternity visiting hours


Visiting maternity during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

We have made changes to our visiting policies in response to the coronavirus pandemic in order to reduce the spread of infection.

  • Women attending outpatient appointments (including antenatal visits, scans and blood tests) should attend the appointment unaccompanied.
  • Currently no visitors are permitted on the antenatal ward or postnatal (including the father of the baby).
  • For women in labour only one companion will be allowed. This companion can stay for the duration of labour but will need to leave four hours after delivery or earlier if the mother is transferred to another area.
  • Any other family members or friends will not be allowed to enter.

Please understand that this has been a very difficult decision to make, safety is our top priority and these measures are necessary to reduce the risk of spreading infection.
