Maternity Centre Recliners Improve Relative's Comfort


UHNM Charity supporters have helped improve the experience and comfort of expectant dads, partners and family members in our Maternity Centre.

It's thanks to their efforts that Ward 205 has been able to purchase 20 bedside recliner chairs for use in our induction bay and for the benefit of long-stay patients.

Midwife Amanda Whitehurst said: "Prior to these recliner's arrival, dads, partners and other family members spending nights with expectant mothers had to try and sleep the best they could on rigid, upright chairs. However, thanks to UHNM Charity funding, their comfort has been greatly improved, allowing them to be more rested throughout what can be a long process."
