Maternity Delivery Suite

Our delivery suite consists of 10 fully equipped birthing rooms. Delivery suite provides care to women whose pregnancy/birth is considered to be high risk and women who have experienced certain pregnancy complications. Delivery suite also provides care to women who choose an epidural in labour or to women who have expressed a preference to birth in this location. During your antenatal appointments our midwives will discuss the different places of birth available to you and provide you with the information necessary for you to establish which location would be most suitable for your labour and birth.

The delivery suite offers a ‘high risk pool room.’ This pool can be utilised by women who wish to labour and/or give birth in a pool but require additional monitoring due to pregnancy complications. The delivery suite also has birthing balls, mats, beanbags and birth couches available to enable women to remain as active and mobile as possible during the birthing process.

Women who give birth on the delivery suite may be recommended to have continuous monitoring of their babies heart beat during labour. This is often referred to as a CTG monitoring. At Whiston we are able to now offer wireless telemetry monitoring of the babies heart beat during labour, and this can help women to remain mobile and active whilst being monitored.
