Midwifery led Unit

Our Midwifery Led Unit (MLU) has four home-from-home rooms and two poolrooms for water births. This area is totally staffed by midwives. In total, there will be seven rooms where women can deliver their babies and remain in the same room until their discharge home.

There are two designated Maternity Theatres directly linked to the Delivery Suite and MLU which are staffed 24-hours per day for elective and emergency surgery.

The ante and postnatal wards have 26 individual rooms, with ensuite bathrooms and sleeping facilities for partners to stay overnight. There is a six bedded post operative care bay where higher dependency care can be delivered around the clock.

The postnatal ward also has four “transitional care” rooms that are used when babies require additional support that can be provided outside the Neonatal Unit.
