Good Hope Hospital – Midwifery Led Unit

The alongside midwifery led unit at Good Hope is an environment suited for women with low risk pregnancies. The criteria and risk assessment for this will be discussed and completed with you by your community midwife.

On arrival you can expect to be greeted by one of the staff members working there who will ask for your personalised hospital number and show you to one of the birthing rooms.

The unit is home to four new spacious and beautifully decorated birthing suites (Lavender Suite, Chamomile Suite, Eucalyptus Suite, Jasmine Suite), two of which include birthing pools. They also incorporate brand new equipment such as birthing cubes, stargazer chairs and height adjustable cots to encourage family centred care and ensure everyone involved feels as comfortable as possible. There are two new overnight rooms which will provide a home away from home for mothers, a family dining/lounge area and its own entrance, all creating a more relaxed and less clinical environment (home like birth) which will have a positive impact on mother and baby.
