Coronavirus and Pregnancy 


Updated 05/01/21


We understand this is a very difficult time for you during your pregnancy. To protect you and your baby changes have been implemented that will impact on your antenatal, labour and postnatal care. Your midwife will be in contact with you if there are any changes to your appointments

Maternity services are here for you and remain open as normal.
Maternity Triage at Ninewells Hospital is a 24 hour, 7 day a week service for pregnant women over 14 weeks with urgent pregnancy concerns. Please do not hesitate to call 01382 632075 if you need advice.

We also have staff available to speak to you regarding your infant feeding plans and to ensure you are safe and supported when leaving for home, just ask your midwife to be put in touch with the infant feeding team.
