What if I am admitted to the MBU?

The MBU is located at Leverndale Hospital in Glasgow and can accommodate up to six mothers with their babies.

Our staff are specially trained to support you through your recovery and to help you in caring for your new baby. Any decisions about admission and treatment will be discussed with you and, where appropriate, with your family.

The unit tries, as much as possible, to maintain a homely atmosphere within the context of a hospital setting. You will be allocated a single room for you and your baby. You will also have access to a range of facilities including:

  • a communal TV lounge and dining room
  • laundry facilities
  • bathroom and shower rooms
  • kitchen and baby food preparation facilities
  • family sitting room
  • group activity room
  • garden area with seating
