Welcome to the Princess Elizabeth Hospital Maternity Unit.
Our Maternity Service aims to provide excellent care in a friendly and nurturing environment to give mothers, babies and their families personalised care from the early antenatal period, during pregnancy and labour and during the first early days of parenting.
Here at the Hospital we are with you every step of the way throughout your pregnancy and beyond. Serving the families of the Bailiwick, delivering approximately 600 babies a year, we pride ourselves on providing a full range of antenatal, maternity and postnatal services.
Our team of Midwives, Obstetricians, Paediatricians, Physiotherapists and Maternity Support Workers work closely together which makes for an excellent multi-disciplinary team [MDT] both in Hospital and in the community. This ensures we are able to deliver an excellent personalised service with continuity of high quality care, centred around the individual needs of women and their families.
The nature of living in an Island environment and being part of a small unit means that our team are privileged to get to know the women, their partners and families which means we are ideally placed to provide support throughout all stages of their care.
Visiting Loveridge Ward
The entrance to the Maternity Unit is monitored by CCTV and is securely locked at all times. Parents of babies on the Unit can visit at any time during the day, however, the only children allowed onto the Unit to visit are siblings of the baby, and our rationale for this is to reduce the risk of infection. Please may we ask that all visitor us the antibacterial hand gel dispensers on entering the unit this again, is to avoid infection.
Visiting times to the Unit are:
15.30 to 16.30
18.30 to 19.30
We do not have facilities for friends to stay on the unit however, we are now very fortunate to be able to offer overnight accommodation for birthing partners if requested.
We pride ourselves to make sure that women, partners and their families receive the best focused care possible and are entitled to work without fear of aggression or abuse. Antisocial behaviour will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
