Ward information and visiting times 

Please note, our visitor policy has changed due to the current climate. The latest information can be found on the maternity homepage. Thank you.

We welcome family and friends to our maternity unit; however, visiting times are restricted as we know that new parents need time together to get to know their new baby.

We would appreciate it if you help us to look after you and your baby by letting your potential visitors know the following information:

  • Antenatal Care Unit

  • The Birthing Centre

  • Labour Ward - Obstetrics

  • Maternity Care Unit Postnatal Wards - Obstetrics

    • Visitors are allowed from 14:00 – 20:00.
    • Maximum visitors: 2 (in addition to your partner) - for under 16s, only siblings are permitted.
    • Location: 3rd floor, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson (EGA) Wing
    • Telephone: 020 3447 6313 or 020 3447 6312

 What else you need to know

  • Visitors may be asked to wait if it is not a convenient time to visit when they arrive.
  • Please do not to bring any babies or children to the hospital unless they are brothers or sisters of the new baby as newborn babies are vulnerable to infection.
  • Please ensure you and those visiting you observe hand hygiene measures when entering and leaving the ward by using the hand hygiene gel that is provided in these areas. This is to protect you and the new mothers and babies from some infections.
