Midwives at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH) have also recently opened a new Postnatal Discharge Lounge for parents and babies who will soon depart the hospital.
The new facility, which can be found within the Maternity department at Doncaster Royal Infirmary, provides a relaxing setting for new mums and their infants who will soon be heading home. The room contains essential information such as leaflets and booklets, including safe-sleeping advice, infant feeding information and other related items for patient education. This is in addition to comfy seating as well as cot areas, so that parents have everything they need while waiting for their discharge papers and any take-home medications.
The Trust is currently fundraising for the Doncaster and Bassetlaw Birth Appeal, which is seeking to raise £100,000 to provide additional equipment and enhance the environments in the Trust’s maternity and neonatal units to give women, babies and their families in Doncaster and Bassetlaw the very best possible care. Local residents and businesses wishing to support the appeal can contact the charity office on 01302 644244 or donating at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/DBTHBirthAppeal.
Maternity staff at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH) have also launched a new Facebook page called Doncaster and Bassetlaw Maternity Services - to help keep in touch with local parents and parents-to-be. To find the page, click here.
