About the Maternity Unit

Share this page

Welcome to the Princess Elizabeth Hospital Maternity Unit.

Our maternity service aims to provide care in a friendly and nurturing environment to give mothers, babies and their families care from the early antenatal period, during pregnancy and labour and during the first early days of parenting.

Here at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital we are with you every step of the way throughout your pregnancy and beyond. Serving the Guernsey population including approximately 650 new babies a year, we provide a full range of antenatal, maternity and postnatal services. Our team of midwives, obstetricians, paediatricians, physiotherapists and healthcare assistants work closely together, both in the hospital and in the community, to ensue the continuity of high quality care, centred on the individual needs of every woman.

The nature of the island environment and small unit means that our team get to know women, their partners and their families and support them through all stages of their care.

Visiting Loveridge

The entrance to the maternity unit is monitored by CCTV and is securely locked at all times. Fathers of babies on the unit can visit at any time during the day, the only children allowed onto the unit to visit are the brothers and sisters of the baby, this is to reduce the risk of infection.

Visiting times to the unit are:

We do not have facilities for friends and family to stay on the unit and ask that you respect our visiting hours. There are antibacterial hand gel dispensers at the entrance to and around the unit. Again to ensure that the risk of infection is avoided please ensure that you use these on entrance and whilst you are on the unit.

We all work very hard to ensure that women & their families receive the best care possible and are entitled to work without fear of aggression or abuse. Antisocial behaviour will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

The information provided for you here explains in more detail about the advice, information and care we offer.  You can also contact the ward on 725241 ext. 4110.
