As the manager of the Labour Ward, it is my responsibility to ensure that the birthing experience you have at Milton Keynes University Hospital (MKUH) is as good as it could possibly be and individualised to your needs. Outlined below is everything you need to know about maternity services at MKUH.
Firstly I am delighted that you have chosen to share this special occasion at MKUH. We are incredibly fortunate to have a fantastic team made up of doctors, midwives and support staff who will all help make your birth as safe as possible.
Having a baby can be an anxious time for you and your family. To help you understand some of the processes that will happen during your stay on the Labour Ward, our teams have put together this information booklet to explain everything in a little more detail. It will also include practical information such as parking and places to eat which I hope you find useful.
Every birth here at MKUH is important to me and I will do all that I can to ensure that you and your baby have all that you require. A team of staff will be assigned to you on arrival so please make use of them and if you have any questions, comments or concerns please feel comfortable and confident to discuss this with them or ask to speak to the Labour Ward Coordinator or a manager or matron.
I am available Monday to Friday (9am-4pm) and during this time aim to meet with some of our mothers and their families, the staff will be happy to arrange for me to contact you if you would like to speak to me.
You and your baby are the reason we are here and we aim to provide the best care possible for you.
While you are in the care of the maternity team at MKUH, we will do our very best to ensure that:
