**Updated 14 April 2021

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

We recognise the value of the support of a partner, relative or friend for pregnant women when accessing maternity care services. 

We are pleased to say that we can now welcome support partners to all antenatal appointments including early pregnancy assessment and antenatal day unit.

The Maternity Team have carried out risk assessments in all areas and we continue to review these in line with national guidelines. 

Guidance for women and support partners:

  • Support partners should be a member of your household or support bubble
  • We ask that no children attend for any maternity appointments or scans
  • Masks must be worn at all times
  • Women and support partners must regularly wash/sanitise their hands with the washing facilities/hand gels provided
  • Support partners should not attend if they have symptoms of Covid-19 or isolating
  • Women and support partners to maintain the two-metre social distance from others

We continue to welcome support partners onto Labour Ward for all admissions, induction of labour and on Wharncliffe Ward for two hours per day, at pre-arranged times.

We would like to thank all women and families using TRFT Maternity and Gynaecology Services for their ongoing support and patience during these unprecedented times.
