Orchard (Maternity) Ward

Orchard Ward is Bedford Hospital’s maternity ward and is based in Cygnet Wing, the Trust’s dedicated women’s and children’s unit.

The ward cares for pregnant women with high blood pressure, diabetes and other high risk pregnancy conditions, and for postnatal women and their babies. The ward has 24 beds across five bays and four side rooms, as well as a dining room, shower facilities and a nursery.

When a patient arrives on the ward they will be greeted by a member of staff and shown around. They will then be settled into their bed, and mum and baby will be checked over by a member of staff.
