Ward 22 Antenatal


Womens and Childrens entrance at Princess Royal

Welcome to Ward 22 Antenatal.

Our ward, which is made up of 2 bays and 5 en-suite siderooms, is here to look after women before delivery. Our patients normally stay for a varied amount of time depending on their needs, and for many different reasons such as being induced or being unwell during pregnancy.

The ward is always staffed with at least 2 Midwives and 1 Women’s Services Assistant at all times, and has facilities such as a large assisted bath for relaxation and a suite for reflective thinking if needed.

When visiting us at the ward we politely ask;

  • That no children come on to the ward apart from siblings.
  • That you make sure mobile phones are on silent.
  • You avoid bringing flowers onto the ward due to hygiene reasons.
  • Visitors avoid sitting on patient beds.
  • There are no more than two visitors at a bedside.
  • Chairs are put away at the end of each visit.
  • Hand rub that is located on the main ward door is used when entering and leaving the ward. This is an important infection control measure.

If you are admitted to one of our hospitals and would like some guidance about your stay, please visit our staying with us page.

Patient Comments

Oct 2017 – Can’t praise all the staff at maternity enough who all went far and beyond their duty of care to ensure my daughter had a safe delivery. Thanks to the doctor who spotted complications and rectified them speedily with assistance from all the rest of staff no words adequate enough to express my thanks for taking care of my daughter and the safe delivery of my beautiful granddaughter, x

April 2017 – Fantastic service, all staff professional and supportive. I was fully informed of decisions and choices available. [..]What a brilliant centre for women, offering an excellent choice. I would highly recommend Telford as a birthing choice for women.

October 2017 – Maternity unit, both antenatal and post natal are amazing. So supportive.
