Temporary closure of Brook Birthing Unit at Ipswich Hospital

The midwifery-led Brook Birthing Unit at Ipswich Hospital has been temporarily closed to new admissions.

Anyone booked in for induction of labour will also now be cared for on Orwell Ward instead of the Nova suite.

Those affected will be supported by our community midwives, but please be assured that anyone who was scheduled to give birth on the Brook Birthing Unit will have the same care and birth plan that they expect, just in a different area within Ipswich’s maternity unit.

If you have any concerns, please contact your midwife or the Ipswich Hospital maternity helpline on 01473 702666. We will be happy to help.
