At Grimsby all of our maternity and children’s services are under one roof in the children and family services building. We offer an LDRP system of care; that’s labour, delivery, recovery and postnatal care in your own en-suite room. Partners are encouraged to stay overnight from delivery to support their partners and help take care of the baby. We also have a dedicated theatre, a family room, high dependency room, a room for disabled mums-to-be and a water birth room. This means that you will be able to have your baby in the same room that you are admitted to, in a home-from-home environment, which has proved hugely popular with families and partners who are actively encouraged to stay with the women throughout their inpatient stay.
At Scunthorpe we have an antenatal clinic and assessment unit, a mixed ante and post natal ward including a transitional care area, central delivery suite which incorporates a dedicated obstetric theatre and has a birthing pool, and a neonatal intensive care unit.
The service at Goole is midwifery-led with a home-from-home delivery unit which has a delivery bed and birthing pool. The unit serves the East Riding area. Women who are classed as ‘high-risk’ are transferred to Scunthorpe for delivery.
