Hi there, Ive seen from here that visiting restrictions have lifted in Holles St and ROtunda. Just wondering if anyone knows if the same applies to the coombe? Hoping to be there soon........... and would love if grandparents were allowed to visit. If anyone knows that would be great! THanks!

I was kept in during the week and only DH was allowed visit. Hopefully they will be lifted soon, before I have my little one!!

on both my DS's there was no visiting in the Coombe. DH had a visiting card and there was no way you'd get in without it. my nephew was born there last september and there was no visiting but we did some swapping of the card for some quick visits. I don't think they will be lifting the restrictions, it seems to be going on a long time now. maybe they will and i will be third time lucky to get visitors!!

I was in semi p room the last time and tbh i'd have preferred no visitors in the room. one woman must've had 20 people around the bed and all passing the baby from one to the other. The baby cried constantly for 2 days solid, and the midwives said it was unsettled cos of all the passing around. Don't know how true that is, but it makes sense. On the other hand I was dying to show off my LO but restricted my visitors to grandparents. Much easier to control! Didn't let them hold LO either after what i had seen with the other woman!

I'm sure as they have in the other hospitals The Coombe will follow suit? Maybe give them a call and see what they say. I asked at main desk in Holles S and was sooo excited when they told me it was lifted :o)ll
