Ngaire said it was wonderful to be able to once again birth at St John of God Mt Lawley Hospital.
“I was so pleased to be able to birth Florence at St John of God Mt Lawley Hospital as I know I will always receive great care the Family Birthing Unit,” she said.
“The unit is familiar to me, close to home and I know many of the midwives. The care I received was exceptional and my obstetrician Ken Nathan was superb. I really appreciate everything that the hospital and unit has done for our family.”
Chief Executive Officer Paul Dyer congratulated the Kiernan family on the birth of baby Florence.
“It was wonderful to welcome the Kiernan family back to the Family Birthing Unit where all Florence’s siblings and parents were born,” he said.
“We are very proud that the Kiernans chose St John of God Mt Lawley Hospital once again to birth and care for Ngaire and baby Florence.
“Our Family Birthing Unit offers a team of expert midwives who are all passionate about the role they play in helping bring babies into the world.
“The ethos of the unit and all caregivers working there is to encourage, support and educate women and their families to have the birth of their choice in the safest way, and I am really pleased that we have had the opportunity to care for the Kiernan family again.”
The Family Birthing Unit has been birthing babies since 1937 at the riverside location in the suburb of Mount Lawley.
