The tours are run by a group of volunteers who have been trained to undertake this role. The volunteers have no clinical midwifery knowledge and will be unable to answer questions related to clinical midwifery care.

  • You need to book a place to allow us to comply with Health and Safety procedures 
  • Please do not just turn up as we will have to turn you away 
  • Please do not attend a tour if you or your partners are unwell, have flu like symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who has a communicable infection 
  • There may be times, due to the prevention of infection, that tours may be cancelled.

They have an answer machine so please feel free to leave your name and a message and for non-urgent calls they will reply within 48 hours. Of course if your call is more urgent they will respond the same day or you can contact your GP for advice.
