Neonatal Care

Liverpool Women’s is a recognised centre of excellence for neonatal care - providing care for babies born prematurely, with low weight or who have a medical condition that requires specialist treatment.

Specialist care

Liverpool Women’s Neonatal Unit is part of the Cheshire and Merseyside Neonatal Network and takes care of more than 1,000 babies and their families every year from the Isle of Man, North Wales and other areas of the country. We ensure the whole family is included in the care and decision making of their baby in order to provide family centered care of the highest quality and in accordance with our philosophy of care.

The Neonatal Unit is located within Liverpool Women's Crown Street site where we house 44 cots; 12 for the intensive care of the newborn, 12 for high dependency and 20 for low dependency care. There are also 8 cots for transitional care that are situated on the Maternity Ward.
