COVID-19 Maternity visiting hours 

When you move to the postnatal ward with your baby, your birth partner can transfer with you and stay with you for the remainder of that day.

Please be aware, due to space limitations in some areas/rooms, your birth partner may be asked by ward staff to step out of your room or in the case of a shared patient room, may be asked to leave. This is to ensure physical distancing can be maintained and to keep other women and babies in our hospital as well as our staff, safe.  

When your birth partner comes for a subsequent visit, they can stay for up to 2 hours per day on the ward. Again, there may be times when your birth partner may be asked by ward staff to step out of your room or in some cases, they may be asked to leave.

Other than your birth partner, no other visitors are allowed on the postnatal ward.

When you are discharged from hospital, you will still receive support through our postnatal care in the home program. Some of these appointments may be done in person or over the phone.
