Safeguarding and Support

Within RUH Maternity there is a safeguarding team based at the hospital that includes a Named Midwife for Safeguarding and 2 specialist Support Midwives, who can provide support with any complex social issues you may be experiencing.

There is also specialist support available for domestic abuse and learning disability.

If we have any concerns that your baby or older children are at risk of harm we have a duty to complete a referral to Children's Social Care in order to put support in place for you and your family. We also have a dedicated team of community midwives called the Lotus team that can provide longer appointments, continuity of care and home visits for those women that require a higher level of support during their pregnancy and postnatal period.
