  • I am soon to have a C-Section/ Birth at Kingsberry Hospital March 2021. What is the situation/set up for myself and my husband. Does kingsberry offer over night stays for the husbands during the covid?

  • Good day.

    Please advise on the change of regulations imposed during Covid-19.

    Before Covid-19 husbands had the option of sleeping over at the martenity ward with their wives. This was revoked due to Covid-19, now that we are past Covid are you even considering reinstating that privilege to the expecting parents?

    My wife is due in December, I would appreciate an earlier response as I would like to make an informed decision before we tie ourselves down to a hospital that doesn’t meet our birth plans.
