Address and directions

Level 4 Maternity Block

Please Note

Following the birth of your baby you will be cared for by the staff on level 4. Our postnatal team are there to support you in the early postnatal period and will monitor the health of you and your baby. They will provide support for your chosen method of feeding.

**A mother's older children are welcome to visit, but unfortunately we are unable to allow other children (nephews, nieces, friends etc.) to visit whilst in hospital as this is to reduce the risk of infection for newborn babies.

**Only three visitors at the bedside at any one time please, so that we can maintain a calm, supporting environment. We kindly ask that you adhere to our visiting as stated above.

Most of our accommodation on the wards are 4 bedded bays and we will do our best to maintain your privacy and dignity at all times.

We will encourage you to go home from the birth area or early discharge lounge (between 2-24 hrs) if both you and your baby are well following birth.

We also care for  pregnant women who require hospital admission prior to labour and operate a transitional care bay, for extra support for babies who might otherwise need care in Buscot, as well as offering an early discharge service for mums and babies.

**Please note in the current situation this may be different – please check with the ward
