After a difficult and disappointing week for the team and our caseload it has been absolutely wonderful to receive these morale boosting birth announcements and messages of support from our clients.
As a small team it is not possible for us to provide 24/7 cover for births in the maternity unit but from the 1st of April Caroline, Kirsty, Emily and Lucy will be working shifts at the Royal Surrey’s delivery suite with the aim of supporting as many of you as possible when you have your babies, and supporting our wonderful colleagues to continue to provide safe and positive care during the pandemic.
Anna will be taking over the management and coordination of your antenatal and postnatal care via telephone and arrange appropriate appointments and checks.
Plans will likely change and evolve over the coming days and weeks but we will endeavour to support and care for you as a team in what ever capacity we can.
We will continue to invite clients who’s due dates fall outside the estimated twelve week suspension, so please do continue to get in touch via our email address so that we can talk through your options individually.
Caroline, Kirsty, Emily, Lucy and Anna
