Update on Maternity Services Restrictions due to Covid-19

The latest update to ‘Scotland’s route map through and out of the crisis’ includes:

‘From 13 July, women may identify one designated visitor to accompany them to scans/antenatal/ postnatal appointments. In addition to the birth partner, women who choose to can have one additional person attending the birth. Women can have their birth partner and one designated visitor visit in antenatal and postnatal wards.

The full range of birth options will be available across Health Boards, including home birth, from 31 July.’

I’m so happy! You can find me over there doing my happy dance!

Homebirths are back on in Edinburgh and the Lothians!

Homebirths have now been reinstated! This is good news and definitely a step forward in reinstating maternity services as they were before Covid-19.

There are still some restrictions even in homebirths. Please feel free to get in touch if you'd like to chat about this (a no-obligation chat, that is!)
