MATERNITY VISITOR RESTRICTIONS

Starting from 26th March 2020: for the duration of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) alert St George’s Maternity Services will be restricting visitors to ONLY ONE BIRTH PARTNER IN LABOUR AND NO-ONE, NOT EVEN THE PARTNER, WILL BE ADMITTED TO THE ANTENATAL OR POSTNATAL WARDS to minimise risk to babies, new mothers and staff.

Translation and special needs services for women are available by phone. Translators and essential support that need to physically attend the hospital to accompany mothers will still be allowed, but will be assessed on the individual’s needs, such as impaired hearing.

As such, from today we will be alerting women who come into hospital with their partner to give birth that they bring everything they and their baby need for their entire stay, including after the birth. No further visitors or items will be allowed into the postnatal ward at any time.

THEREFORE ANY BIRTH PARTNERS WHO LEAVE THE DELIVERY SUITE WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO RE-ENTER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

Please note: the Lanesborough entrance is now closed and will only be accessible by buzzer to labouring women who are unable to walk from the main Grosvenor Wing entrance.

What women say about our services

“Whilst I was very scared and extremely worried about giving birth again, the midwife who I had throughout the whole labour, was amazing……As a result, I had no blood loss. I had no tears, I was able to bond with my baby straight away and breast feed well. I recovered from labour in no time, due to her professionalism.”

“I want to reassure you that your staff are doing a fantastic job despite the huge demands placed on them.”

“My husband and I will be forever grateful to the individuals involved and the NHS for the extremely high level of care provided”
