The Maternity Ward

Some women need care in hospital during the antenatal period. Care is provided on the Maternity Ward on the first floor of the Wirral Women and Children’s Hospital.

There are 26 individual rooms for newly delivered mothers and pregnant women, each with en-suite bathrooms. Your support person may be able to stay on the ward with you.

There is a six-bedded Post Operative Care Bay where you will go for a short period of time if you have been to theatre for any procedure.

The Postnatal ward also has four “Transitional Care” rooms that are used when babies require additional support that can be provided with the support of the Neonatal Unit.
