Antenatal Day Assessment Unit (ADAU)

Welcome to Antenatal Day Assessment Unit (ADAU).

There are seven triage beds and quiet rooms here. There are midwives and maternity support workers here to support and care for you and your baby.

You may also see a doctor for additional care for you and your baby whilst you are in ADAU.

Please call ADAU on 01908 996 481 if:

  • you think your waters have broken
  • your contractions are becoming more painful and regular and you need midwifery support
  • you have experienced blood loss
  • you have any concerns about the movements of your baby
  • you have any other concerns.

The midwives will then be able to help you decide whether you can stay at home or if you need to be reviewed in hospital.

Watch this video to familiarise yourself with what the unit looks like.
