Aberdeen Maternity Hospital (AMH) was built in 1937 and now caters for over 5000 deliveries a year. A new Women's Hospital is due to be built and completed by 2021, bringing together the Obstetric, Neonatal and Fertilty services with Gynaecology and Breast Surgery.
There is 24 hour resident Labour Ward anaesthetic cover, backed up by a sub-specialty group of consultants. Two consultants are present at AMH all day during the week, with on-call cover being provided at other times. As well as specialist Obstetric clinics, there is an Anaesthetic clinc for higher risk patients and one for pre-operative assessment prior to Caesarean section.
