Once your baby has been born, a consultant neonatologist will examine them. In the unlikely event that they need any further care, there is an onsite neonatology department so your little one will never be far away.
Eugene will be present through your delivery and, once your baby is born, he will examine you and give any specific treatment required to assist your recovery. Your midwife will support you over the next few days with everything from breast-feeding techniques to helping you look after your baby. You can stay at the Westminster Suite as long as you like, and will only be discharged when you feel ready to go home. Before you go, the specialist team will check your baby to ensure they’re fit and well, and Eugene will examine you to be sure you’re ready to go home. Both of you will have a last check up with Eugene a few weeks later to check you’re both safe and well.
