Our maternity services

Every baby’s birth is unique - our caregivers are here to support you and your doctor to meet your personal birthing and care needs. Our maternity and neonatal facilities are some of the finest in the country.

Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) precautions

As a part of our coronavirus (COVID-19) management plans and advice from authorities, we are undertaking a number of precautions to help keep people within our hospitals and facilities safe from harm.

We ask that our patients have only one designated visitor for the duration of their stay, and that no other visitors, access our hospital during this time. 

If you are the designated visitor and you are feeling at all unwell, please reconsider your visit to help protect the more vulnerable in our facilities.

This decision has been made in the best interests of you, your family, all our patients and caregivers. 

Thank you in advance for your support of this.

Maternity tours and parent education classes

Maternity tours and parent education classes have been cancelled to minimise visitors and large gatherings at our hospitals to help keep our patients safe.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

If you have a question about our maternity services, please contact us.
