Update published on March 21, which a spokesperson confirmed is still valid: “We understand that at this time, there is a lot of anxiety around the provision of Maternity Care, and in particular, Antenatal Care.
“Please be assured that we will continue to provide care. We may, however, need to change how this care is delivered, and this may mean that for some appointments, there will be a telephone consultation rather than a face to face meeting. We would advise you to continue to attend planned appointments including any scans unless we contact you, however, we do ask that you attend on your own.
“The health and wellbeing of yourself and your baby is very important to us, and should you have pregnancy-related concerns, including for Labour, you should continue to contact us on the numbers provided in your handheld records. If you could avoid calling these numbers to check that appointments are going ahead, that would be really helpful
“Despite changes to visiting in our hospitals, you will still be able to have one birth partner with you for your delivery and that person will be your nominated visitors for your time on the ward post-birth.
“We understand that this will be very upsetting for many of our mums to be and their families, but ask that you adhere to this during this very difficult time in order to keep you, your baby and our staff safe.”
