The Neonatal Unit

The Neonatal Unit at Aberdeen Maternity Hospital cares for premature and sick babies.

Having a baby is a life changing experience. If you do find yourself and your baby in the Neonatal Unit it most probably means that your little bundle has been born too early or too sick and, no matter the outcome, there will be challenging times ahead.

Many families spend a few days with their baby in the Unit, while other babies need specialist care for longer and it becomes their second home.
