Cheltenham Aveta birth centre: reopening

3 Feb 2022, 11 a.m.

We’re delighted to announce that the Aveta Birth Centre at Cheltenham General Hospital will be re-opening next week (Monday 7 February).

The centre was converted to a temporary adult assessment area, enabling us to facilitate the continuation of adult orthopaedic surgery. We'd like to thank families and colleagues for their patience and flexibility in accommodating this temporary change. If you have any specific questions relating to your birthing plans, please contact the clinical team directly.

Your birth supporter can attend all antenatal appointments, including ultrasound scans, and continue to support you during labour and birth. Daily Lateral flow tests will need to be taken before entry to the wards otherwise you will be refused. To learn more about other sensible precautions visit our Maternity Services page.
