Maternity visiting times

Two birth partners are allowed on delivery suite for the duration of your stay. 

An additional adult visitor is allowed on the antenatal and postnatal wards during the visiting hours of 14.00-16.00 and 18.00-20.00. No more than three adults will be allowed around the bedside during visiting hours.

Birth partners can stay overnight on the antenatal and postnatal wards. The patient’s own children can visit outside of visiting times with the birth partner.

One supportive adult can accompany the patient for all scans, outpatient appointments and in assessment areas.

If you or anyone in your household develops symptoms that might be related to coronavirus, please do not come into hospital unannounced. 

Any inpatient who is COVID-positive can be accompanied by a birth partner who tests negative on a lateral flow test (LFT).

Pregnancy and coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you're pregnant, you're at higher risk of getting seriously ill from coronavirus (COVID-19). If you get COVID-19 late in your pregnancy, your baby could also be at risk. It is strongly recommended that you get vaccinated against COVID-19 if you're pregnant or breastfeeding.

Please talk to your midwife or doctor if you are worried or have any questions. You can also use these links for more information:
