Working in partnership with parents
If your baby needs to be admitted to the neonatal unit it can be a very worrying time for you and your family. The staff will support you whilst your baby is in the Special Care Baby Unit.
As a parent or carer you are an important and invaluable part of your baby’s care so we have an open visiting policy enabling you to be with your baby at all times, day and night. Brothers and sisters are encouraged to visit (with a parent) so that they get to know their new baby too. Other visitors are asked to visit only when parents are present.
As a parent, you are able to stay overnight if your baby is very unwell. We always encourage you to stay overnight with your baby before taking him or her home.
