Visiting our Maternity Services

For the latest visiting guidance for Rotherham Hospital, please see our visiting restrictions page.

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s Maternity Services remain committed to facilitating support for pregnant women throughout their pregnancy and childbirth.

The Maternity Team is pleased to announce that with immediate effect:

Mask Wearing
Across all areas, patients, visitors, and colleagues are no longer required to wear a mask, but some may wish to do so based on their personal circumstance or comfort. 
Visitors to patients isolated with Covid-19 should continue to wear a surgical mask and be provided with one if necessary. The patients should also be asked to wear a mask if they are able to.

We continue to welcome two birthing partners on Labour Ward at all times.

  • On Wharncliffe Ward, we are pleased to be able to continue welcoming one named birth partner 10am - 8pm and in addition to this, we are opening up visiting to others between 12noon - 2pm and 6pm - 8pm.
  • Children are also welcome to visit the unit to see their mummies and new siblings. For Labour Ward, please discuss with the midwife caring for you to arrange children visiting. On Wharncliffe Ward, siblings are welcome between 10am - 8pm, supervised by the named birthing partner. (We ask that you have no more than two visitors in total at the bedside at any one time, but appreciate that sometimes baby will have more than one sibling to meet. If this is true for you, please let the midwife caring for you know and we can arrange for your family to be together for a visit.)
  • Ward B11 (Gynaecology) now has visiting hours in line with Trust policy: 11:00am - 8pm. There are no longer any restrictions re- protected mealtimes.

Car parking

Car parking is available in the main visitors carpark at the front entrance, but for more information on car parking please click here.

The maternity entrance has a barrier in place, which is operated by the security team, providing safe access to the unit for emergency vehicles, disabled patients/visitors, and access for patients being collected and dropped-off.

Unit security

Our department has electronic doors covered by CCTV, which you have to ask to be let in and out of. This is to protect the privacy and security of all patients, especially babies.

We kindly request that all visitors and patients respect that these are in place to protect you and ensure that doors are not left open or held open to allow visitors to follow you in.
