More about Dorset County Hospital Maternity Unit
For mums that need extra care, the maternity unit has 24-hour obstetrician support, along with anaesthetists should you choose to have an epidural.
If your baby has any medical issues following the birth, neonatologists and paediatric staff are available at all times.
We have a dedicated Infant Feeding Team to help you with feeding while you are staying with us. However, all staff are trained to help you feed your baby and we have full BFI accreditation.
