Our aim is to ensure your time in hospital is a positive experience. Our midwives and consultants are trained to take care of you in a professional way and with sensitivity in keeping with the values of Liverpool Women’s. Remember to plan your route to hospital in advance and arrange who is going to bring you. This helps to reduce any worries you may have when the time comes.
When you get to the maternity unit
On arrival at the maternity unit, staff will welcome you and check your details. They will guide you through the admission process and answer any immediate questions you may have. During your stay, you will be required to wear a patient ID band. Your baby will also wear two ID bands following the birth. These bands will use the surname of the baby's mother.
We are able to offer a limited number of rooms on our Maternity Ward for our Amenity Bed Scheme. You would have the option of staying in your own room or booking a room to allow your birth partner to stay overnight with you and your new baby.
This service provides you with your own personal side room with en-suite facilities; and should your birth partner wish to stay, bed and breakfast will also be provided.
For more information, please speak to your midwife, who will be able to advise
on availability and cost; and will be able to arrange your partner’s stay.
