The Trust has developed a virtual tour of the maternity ward West Cumberland Hospital.

The video tour, which has a voiceover and subtitles features Julie McQuire, Community Midwife explaining how to get to the delivery suite and then once inside, she takes you on a journey through:

  • the maternity reception
  • single labour rooms, including one with a birthing pool*
  • maternity theatre
  • maternity ward which also includes:
    • dining room
    • antenatal ward
    • day assessment unit

*When you phone ahead to let the midwives know you’re on your way, please let the team know if you would like to use the birthing pool.

Janet Riley, Matron for maternity services at West Cumberland Hospital, said:

“Having a virtual tour in place is really important for anyone who is expecting to come to us. We hope that it will help to calm any nerves of those who are feeling anxious ahead of attending.

“It is such an exciting for parents to be and we want to make the journey as seamless as possible.”
