The Maternity Unit

- Ward G3 is an antenatal ward of 12 beds which includes four induction or early labour rooms.
- Ward G2 is a postnatal ward consisting of 20 beds and 20 cots.
Care is provided by teams of midwives, some of who come into the unit to maintain their professional skills. Opportunities are available for hospital-based midwives to undertake a rotational period to community if they so wish.
Antenatal Day Service
We provide an antenatal clinic and day unit at York Hospital. Antenatal ultrasound is part of this facility.
An antenatal clinic is held every Monday at Selby War Memorial Hospital where antenatal scanning facilities and a screening service is also available.
If you are a first time mum ask your midwife about local antenatal classes which you can access from 28 pregnant.
Antenatal classes produced by our own staff are now available on our website for you, your family and friends to share at any time during your pregnancy. We hope they will answer many of your questions about your pregnancy and birth at York Hospital. Please remember your community midwife or staff in the maternity unit are always available if you have any concerns and need to speak to someone. Click here to view our classes.
