Care on the Postnatal Ward

 Your baby will have a thorough examination by a doctor or advanced neonatal nurse practitioner in the postnatal ward. If your baby needs some medical treatment or closer observation but does not need care in Neonatal Unit we make sure that your baby is not separated from you. Both you and your baby will remain on the postnatal ward under the care of the midwife. Your baby will be reviewed by paediatric team regularly and appropriate treatment will be given. You will have every opportunity to discuss your baby's progress with the paediatric team.
