Covid-19 and pregnancy
Before you attend for any care (hospital or community)
PLEASE do not attend routine appointments if you have any symptoms of Covid-19 or have tested positive. Please phone to make your midwife or Antenatal Clinic aware of the reason you cannot attend.
IF you think you are in labour or need to attend the hospital for urgent unplanned care, eg MAC you should still attend, but telephone first so that we can assess the circumstances, and if necessary meet you at the door along with protective clothing.
