 Common reasons for calling the Labour Ward

  • You are concerned about any change in the pattern of your baby’s movements.
  • You haven’t felt your baby move for several hours.
  • Your waters have broken.
  • You notice any blood from the vagina
  • You have any discharge that is different from the normal discharge during pregnancy.
  • You are having contractions.

NB If you call the Labour ward with a query it does not necessarily mean that you will be invited in. We deal with each call individually and will direct mothers to the most appropriate person depending on your symptoms and the stage of your pregnancy. That may mean coming in for monitoring, being seen by your Community Midwife or your GP may be the most appropriate person to see.
