With your support, The Doncaster and Bassetlaw Birth Appeal
will provide additional equipment and enhance the environments in our maternity units to give women, babies and their families in Doncaster and Bassetlaw the very best possible care.
With more than 5,000 babies born in our hospitals each year we want to improve the birth environments on offer to all women in Doncaster and Bassetlaw, whether they are likely to have a straightforward, low-risk birth or a higher risk and will need medical support, so that they have the choice to give birth in the best way for them.
Studies show that when a woman feels calm and in control of how she
gives birth, both medical intervention and adverse outcomes are reduced. The Doncaster and Bassetlaw Birth Appeal aims to improve the maternity environments so family members can support women before, during and after labour, to help them remain
calm and in control.
Funds from the appeal will help us provide items such as:
- Reclining chairs for dads/ family members to
stay with women who are in labour on our labour wards
- Chair beds for dads/ family members to stay with
women post birth who need extra support after a caesarean or induction
- Updates to furniture, décor and blinds to help
give both units a homely, calm and relaxing environment
- Updates to décor and furniture in the family room,
to support families during difficult times
