In addition we have five community midwifery teams who support you wherever you live in South Warwickshire and the surrounding areas.
Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU)
If your baby is born early or requires special medical and nursing care, they will be looked after in our Special Baby Care Unit. Baby's parents, grandparents and siblings are welcome to visit anytime. A maximum of two other visitors are allowed between 18:30 - 19:30 and all visitors must be accompanied by a parent at all times. As babies are very vulnerable at this time, they should not be visited by anyone who is unwell with a cold, recent diarrhoea or vomiting, or any infection.

Certificate of Commitment by the UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative
Warwick Hospital is delighted to have been awarded a Certificate of Commitment by the UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative. This recognises our commitment to supporting parents to make informed choices about how they feed and care for their babies. Warwick Hospital is proud to be working towards full Baby Friendly accreditation.
The Birth Experience Listening Service
At Warwick hospital we offer all women who have had a baby here, an opportunity to discuss the events surrounding their baby’s birth. If you think you could benefit from the opportunity to discuss your birth experience, please email our generic Birth Listening email address - email@example.com. The Birth Listening Service is not the correct service if you are looking to discuss complaints.
A member of the Birth Listening Team will email you back as soon as possible to arrange an appointment with an experienced Midwife. We offer sessions by telephone or on Microsoft Teams. Birth Listening Sessions can also be face-to-face if required, however this may incur a longer wait time for appointment. We try to arrange appointments to take place within 2-4 weeks of your email. There is no time limit after the birth, however we recommend that you wait at least 6-8 weeks so that you have had time to process what has happened. You can attend the appointment with your birth partner (or somebody else) if you would like to.
