Birthing Improvements at York District Hospital

Birthing Improvements at York District Hospital
York Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

An additional pool room has been provided to increase the accessibility of a water birth for women and promoting patient choice.  We have also created three en-suite birthing rooms ensuring that women have access to WC and bathing facilities during labour.  We have furnished the birthing rooms in a way that supports women during labour and provides comfortable facilities for birthing partners.

The works were undertaken whilst the remainder of the ward remained operational for the duration of the works as the maternity ward operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
