The Delivery Suite at Pinderfields provides women centred care for both high risk women and the low risk women who chose to deliver there. Women and their families are cared for by the Midwifery and Obstetric team who pride themselves on delivering individualised care and the best possible patient experience.
The Delivery Suite has a full range of facilities and options to support women through their labour, we have 13 private on suite rooms including one with a birthing pool, we also have wireless fetal heart rate monitoring allowing women who need to be monitored during labour the option of the birthing pool. Women are provided 1:1 Midwifery care in labour, this further supported as clinically required by dedicated Obstetric, Neonatal and Anaesthetic teams.
The Unit has a separate Triage open 24 hours to provide assessment and reassurance for women with Antenatal concerns, it also has an Enhanced Recovery area where women who are booked for an Elective Caesarean section are admitted to and in many cases where appropriate will received their full care from admission to discharge.
