Partner can accompany to all baby scans, antenatal appointments and community antenatal appointments, but will require a lateral flow test. Birth partners are now able to stay overnight, and children of the mother will be able to visit if accompanied by the birth partner.
Women and their partners can come straight to the ultrasound department and wait in the waiting room. If the waiting room exceeds the number of people allowed we will ask you to wait in a designated area in the corridor.
Unfortunately, children and additional relatives cannot attend with you and therefore we ask that you make the necessary childcare arrangements ahead of your appointment.
We cannot permit any recording of obstetric scans as per our current policy nor is face time appropriate.
This is an exceptional situation and we appreciate your support in keeping women and families safe, and also allowing us to keep our staff safe so we can maintain our services.
