Within the maternity unit we believe in family centered care, but in order to allow for privacy to patients, rest periods for mums and babies, doctors rounds, medical examinations and to ensure security for mums and babies, visiting times will be restricted as follows;
Antenatal and Postnatal Wards
Birthing partners: 9am - 9pm
Visitors: 2pm - 4pm and 6pm - 8pm
Visitors are limited to 3 persons per bed.
To ensure the maintenance of security and privacy for all patients on delivery suite there are no visiting hours on delivery suite. Access is allowed to the maximum of 2 birthing partners only. Visitors are not allowed in theatre or the recovery room and the swapping of birthing partners during labour is not allowed.
Any other visitors will be advised to visit during allocated visiting hours on antenatal or postnatal wards following transfer of mum and baby.
It is respectfully requested that children visiting within the unit are only brought if they are the direct sibling to the newborn baby.Other children will not be allowed within the ward areas.
