Delivery Suite at Queen Elizabeth Hospital

  QEH Outside


Our Delivery Suite has purpose-built, modern facilities with dedicated healthcare professionals available 24-hours a day on site to ensure that you and your baby receive high quality care during your labour.

We have 17 rooms on Delivery Suite which include a dedicated high risk room and one room with a birth pool for birthing people who would like to be in water during labour. We also have portable pools.  All rooms have access to birthing aids, such as birthing balls, birthing stools and bean bags to encourage an active labour.
