Fathers and partners are an important part of a family. We welcome their involvement in your pregnancy, birth and beyond. Partners are welcome to attend your appointments, scans and classes if you wish.
A nominated supporter may stay with you overnight in both our antenatal and postnatal ward areas, whoever you think will offer you the best support during your stay, however this must be the same person for the whole night. The expectation is that they will provide you with support overnight, as such we are unable to provide sleeping facilities. An agreement contract will be given to them to agree and sign that informs your partner of the considerations we ask them to follow during their stay. This is to ensure the safety, privacy and dignity of all our mothers, babies and staff overnight and we welcome your support in this matter.
If having your partner stay with you is something you would like to consider, please take the time to read the information and agreement leaflet below.
If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to speak to your midwife or a member of ward staff.
