Maternity triage service

The maternity triage service is available for women and birthing people from 16 weeks of pregnancy up until 28 days after the birth of their baby and who have pregnancy related concerns.

Our specialist team of midwives are on hand to provide expert care and offer advice 24 hours a day, seven days per week, both at the maternity triage unit and via the telephone helpline. We aim to see people within 15 minutes of arrival for an initial review and assessment.

It’s so important that women and birthing people with pregnancy related concerns such as abdominal pain, leaking of fluid, or changes in their baby’s movements, can seek the appropriate advice and follow up care as soon as possible.

Women and birthing people who are below 15 weeks and 6 days of pregnancy will be seen in our Early Pregnancy Unit.

We recommend that women and birthing people contact the maternity triage helpline before attending the hospital, so that our team can advise accordingly.

The maternity triage service can be found on the lower ground floor, blue zone, location A40.

Inpatient comment:

Everyone offered words of such reassurance and kindness. I felt so cared for and the communication with me at all times was fantastic.
