Day Assessment Unit (DAU)

The Day Assessment Unit is located on Ashcombe Birth Centre and is open Mon-Fri 08.30-16.30. The unit is midwife-led supported by a Consultant Obstetrician. Women with antenatal complications after 22 weeks gestation who require an increased level of antenatal care, for example pregnancy induced high blood pressure, can be referred to this service by their named midwife, GP, self referral or DAU at St Michael's Hospital.  DAU is operated on an appointment basis only.
