Because of you – Maternity

Birthing poolBirthing pool and chair

Thanks to fundraising, our maternity department has seen the addition of a new birthing pool in the consultant led suite. As well as the new pool, there are also some comfortable chairs which can be extended into beds for a birthing partner to stay.

With thanks to two parents who had sadly lost a baby, the Bereavement Garden has been opened and is in use with stones to paint to remember lost loved ones, an area to reflect with benches and a quiet space to go away from the hustle and bustle of the main site. This garden has been well received by both patients and staff who use it to find that little bit of peace.
