What is Maternity care?
Maternity is the care of women and their babies during pregnancy, birth and the first few weeks after birth.
What is Gynaecology?
Gynaecology is the treatment of conditions of the female reproductive organs and fertility and some early pregnancy conditions, also we treat conditions in women of all ages, and undertake investigations for a wide range of female specific problems.
Where are we?
Services are provided across the community on B level of the main hospital site.
Antenatal and postnatal pregnant and new mothers may stay on Wharncliffe our Ward or our Delivery Suite. The Gynaecology ward is Ward B11, also on B Level.
We have community midwives who work within the maternity service but deliver care nearer to home including, GP services and Children's Centres. When you find out you are pregnant, a midwife from your local area will take responsibility for your care and will be your first point of contact. The local midwives will also provide care and support after the birth and if you want to have your baby at home.
Find out more about all of the above by using the menu on the left.
