The antenatal ward has nine beds. This consists of two 4 bedded bays and one single side room with en suite facilities. There are no private amenity rooms available during your antenatal stay. All women who require induction of labour or admission for additional needs during their pregnancy will be cared for on this ward.
The daily consultant ward round will typically take place between 9am and 10am. During this time the obstetric team along with the antenatal midwife will review the care of each patient on the ward. This will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and a plan of care will be made.
