Our maternity services

St John of God Subiaco Hospital provides exceptional maternity care and peace of mind for birth, baby and beyond.

Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) precautions

Visitors

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

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

If you have a question about our maternity services, please call us on 9382 6708.

Why mums-to-be choose St John of God Subiaco Hospital

Emergency care 

We are the only private hospital in Perth to have an emergency theatre located within our delivery ward, reducing delays to critical medical attention if things don’t go to plan during labour.

Specialist neonatal care

We also have onsite specialist neonatal care, which means your baby will stay close to you and won’t be transferred to another hospital if they need extra medical attention after birth.

Experienced obstetricians

Our obstetricians are leaders in their field and choose to provide obstetrics services at our hospital knowing you receive the highest standard of care before, during and after your stay.

Comprehensive parent education

Our parent education support for you and your partner starts early in your pregnancy and continues even after you have left hospital.

Information sessions are available from 12 weeks and classes are designed for every stage of pregnancy, birth and the early weeks of parenting. Parent education classes are available to parents who are booked to have their baby at St John of God Subiaco Hospital. To book a class please visit My Admission. If you have not booked in via the My Admissions visit parent education and complete the booking form.  

To give you and your baby the best possible start we offer a range of free education sessions while you are in hospital on topics including breastfeeding, physiotherapy and general parenting tips. We also run daily meet-ups for dads at the hospital.

Once you and your baby have returned home, we continue to provide support through regular morning teas for new parents and education sessions.

Private rooms and facilities for partners

We offer private rooms with en-suites for all our patients and larger rooms are available for families who have had twins or triplets. Partners are welcome at all times and can stay overnight so as not to miss out on the first precious hours and days with your new baby. It's an important bonding time for you all.

These are just some of the reasons why mum-to-be choose St John of God Subiaco Hospital.
