such as this here an inflatable cub which is a nice horseshoe shape and you can use it to get into different positions to enable a really active labour and each room also has a shared toilet between the next room as well and so I'll take you around to our bigger rooms we've got three of those they're just down the corridor just like following me as you can see this is the main corridor and just a bit further down there are our theatres there's two of those on the unit and then we have three other delivery rooms and one shared toilet fires are down on the right hand side we'll just go in and look at a larger room so as you can see is a little bit more space in these rooms and they're good for multiple deliveries and if you need a bit more space in labor as well and we've got other equipment such as the birth mat on the floor that's available there's a good poster on the wall in each room which has examples of different labor positions that you can get into if you need some inspiration and we've also got plenty of birth balls available as well and there's new lighting in every room as you can see which is quite nice to set the tone and help you really relax and in your in your labour and each room here also has plenty of room for and for your birth partners we usually encourage up to two of those Furber and so this is one of our bathrooms with two available on the suite it's really good if you're know if you're having a low risk pregnancy and you want to use water as a good form of pain relief and we encourage all of our ladies to the upper mobile and use water

  1. For the post natal ward, what is classed as short term and long term in terms of staying in a single or 4 bed ward? I need to stay 48 hours after due to gestational diabetes, would I be in a private room?
