Maternity Visiting Hours

Our Delivery Suites are restricted in their access. On admission our mums are able to bring along with them 2 support people, for the duration of their labour and birth.

Please understand that support people are not interchangeable and prepare in advance. Our staff are focused on providing our mums and families with specialised care, not policing visitors.

Our Special Care Nursery is restricted to allow access to only 2 visitors at a time. All visitors must be accompanied by either of the newborns parents. Please understand that newborns within our nursery require another level of specialised care. Restricting visitors, directly reduces any further delays, to these newborns journey to be reunited with their families.

Please avoid disappointment, please plan your visiting around these times. Partners are welcome, up until 8.00pm daily

Please do not visit if you are unwell

For their own comfort and that of other patients, visitors should refrain from visiting patients in hospital if they are not well.

Hand washing

As Special Care Nursery babies are vulnerable to infection, it is important to reduce this risk. Hands carry bacteria (germs) on the skin.

Bacteria are found on every surface you touch and can cause an infection in newborn babies, especially sick babies as their defence systems for fighting infection are not fully developed. All visitors are asked to wash their hands on entry to the nursery.

We also request that your visitors limit touching/handling of your baby. Unwell babies need as much rest as possible. Over handling can use up precious energy.

Supervision of Children

Patients and visitors are requested to supervise their children for the safety and comfort of all patients within the unit.
