Subject:       Maternity visitation policy

 

Request:

  1. Does your maternity unit allow partners to stay overnight with new mothers after the birth of their child? (Please answer Yes or No)
  2. Please provide your trust’s visitation policy for its maternity ward (enclosed as a PDF or word document or a link to the policy please)

 

 

Response:

1. Does your maternity unit allow partners to stay overnight with new mothers after the birth of their child? We are in the process of arranging visits to other units who routinely offer overnight stays to Dads. Our wards are traditional bays, very limited single rooms, which isn’t ideal so we want to make sure we get it right.
2. Please provide your trust’s visitation policy for its maternity ward? Please find attached a visitor’s leaflet.
