At The James Cook University Hospital we care for women throughout their pregnancy experience, during any antenatal admissions and after birth.
The antenatal ward (ward 19) provides multi-specialist and individualised care for women admitted to hospital during their pregnancy.
The early pregnancy assessment unit (EPAU) provides care, treatment and support for those women who experience bleeding in pregnancy prior to 12 weeks. Using a holistic approach women will receive support, advice and care individualised to their own specific needs.
The maternity assessment unit (MAU) provides care, treatment and support to women experiencing complications during pregnancy and the postnatal period, or who may be in labour.
