PROVIDING EQUIPMENT

Although the ward has all the equipment necessary for the delivery and care
of mums and babies the Trust has worked with the Loveridge team to identify additional items that will enhance the options available to ensure the most vulnerable babies have the best possible chance of survival.

We purchased a battery pack for the Giraffe Shuttle which enables babies to be transported around the hospital if necessary in the safest possible environment.

A discrete drop down resuscitator was purchased for the low risk delivery suite to enable midwives to respond quickly if babies required support after birth.
