Measures to Control the Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection
Due to concerns about the potential spread of the COVID-19 Virus, we at The National Maternity Hospital have had to make some changes to how patients and visitors access the hospital:
Maternity Outpatient appointments: Please attend these appointments unless you hear from the hospital.
Ultrasound Scanning appointments: Please attend these appointments unless you hear from the hospital.
Antenatal Classes: All antenatal classes are cancelled until further notice.
Gynaecology and Physiotherapy: All Gynaecology & Physiotherapy Outpatient appointments are postponed due to COVID-19 until further notice.
Your medical team will be in touch with you to discuss how these changes affect you, and the resources you can access to keep you healthy during pregnancy.
COVID-19 - The NMH 4-point plan for any patient concerned they may have COVID-19:
When you go into labour: the isolation ward is specially designed to be a safe environment during labour and afterwards to keep you and your baby safe and well.
We’re here to help.
