By Your Side support series

The By Your Side series are guiding videos by the team on St John of God Murdoch Hospital's St Mary’s ward, available for parents at any time during your pregnancy and birth journey.

We have produced a series of informational videos aimed at educating and creating ease for new parents after the birth of your child.

They focus on numerous areas of interest, from how to care for your newborn, to the many support services offered at Murdoch.

These videos will also introduce you to some of the faces you might see on St Mary’s ward during your stay at Murdoch.
