Visiting our Maternity Services

  • Visiting is between 8am-8pm for birth partners and siblings and 3pm-8pm for two other visitors on Rowan Ward. There are not currently facilities for birth partners to stay overnight on Rowan ward, this is something that is constantly under review. Children who are not siblings of the newborn are not permitted on Rowan ward.
  • Two birthing partners can accompany you whilst in labour.
  • For pregnant people - your birth partner can accompany you to all your appointments including your scans, however children are unable to attend.
  • There is a drop off area outside Rockingham Wing, but currently no parking directly outside. Please park in the multi-story car park and ask your midwife about an extended stay car parking permit.
  • We are currently having some urgent estates work done on the front and upper levels of Rockingham Wing. Please bear with us during this time.

If a visitor or support partner has a positive test or are displaying symptoms of COVID they are asked to remain at home. Please continue to use hand gels or wash hands, as appropriate. If you have any concerns, please speak to your midwife.

Changes to the way we are working during Coronavirus

As a consequence of COVID we have needed to implement some changes to the way we are working, and how we provide your care to you, in order to keep you, other families and our staff as safe as possible. Please be assured that the safety of you and your baby is of paramount importance to us, and therefore all changes have been made after reviewing the best and most recent guidance from Public Health England and the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists.
All members of the maternity services team within the community and the hospital are keeping their knowledge regarding guidance for pregnancy care very current, so if you have any questions about your care, please discuss them with your midwife or obstetrician.
It remains really important that if you have any concerns during your pregnancy (such as stomach pains, bleeding, reduced/changed movements) you don’t hesitate in contacting our Delivery Suite. You should also contact the Delivery Suite if you feel your labour has started. The midwives will be able to guide you as to when to come into hospital.
We understand that you may be worried about the impact of coronavirus on your pregnancy and your access to healthcare and have therefore provided information videos relating to aspects of your pregnancy and birth to enhance the information verbally provided to you by the midwifery team.
