The Delivery Suite is situated on the first floor of the Cygnet Wing, our dedicated women’s and children’s wing. The suite has a birthing pool and eight delivery rooms. Each delivery room contains a multi-positional bed and armchair and we have a large supply of birthing balls and bean bags to aid comfort throughout labour and promote active birth.
Each room has access to the patient call television, telephone and internet system and there are shower facilities on the suite.
Mothers and birth partners also have access to a parents’ sitting room with a self service drinks machine. A father’s overnight stay room is available and is equipped with a double sofa bed and en suite facilities. An automated snack /cold drinks dispenser is situated in the lobby area adjacent to the lift.
Included in the Delivery Suite is a theatre complex, including an anaesthetic, recovery area and blood bank facility. The recovery area is also used as a ‘high dependency area’ for women requiring this type of care.
