Your labour experience

Our labour ward is situated on the ground floor of the Maternity Building. There are ten birthing rooms, one birthing pool and each room has its own en-suite facilities.

We have a maternity triage, maternity day assessment unit, two maternal high dependency unit rooms, two state of the art obstetric theatres, a three bedded recovery bay for elective surgical procedures and a two bedded assessment bay.  We have two dedicated bereavement rooms away from the main labour ward.

We offer continuous fetal monitoring for pregnant women who require it in labour via a cardiotocography (CTG) machine. We will soon offer the option of a telemetry (cordless and waterproof transducers) so you can mobilise more freely and be immersed in water whilst having your baby’s heart rate monitored
