If you are unsure whether to come in or not, or if you are in labour contact our Birthing Unit so that we can prepare for your arrival. Telephone 9105 5240 any time.
Coming to the hospital
Notify your partner or support person (and doula, if you have one) and bring your packed bag.
There is a drop-off bay close to the main entrance, and a 1,400-space multistory car park nearby.
Make your way to a lift and come to Level 2. Follow the signs to 'Birthing Unit'.
If you are in strong labour, and have phoned ahead, we will meet you inside the main entrance to the hospital on the ground floor. Please call 9105 5240 on arrival or tell someone at the ground floor Concierge Desk who will call us.
For labour and delivery
Bring anything you like to make yourself comfortable during labour (eg a favourite pillow, music, oils, a TENS machine). You and your partner/support person will have access to refreshments, but are welcome to bring your own if you wish.
For the maternity ward
- Nappies and wipes
- Comfortable clothing for mum
- Maternity pads and breast pads. We also highly recommend Hydrogel Breast Discs for their soothing and healing properties during the transition to breastfeeding
- Clothing and a swaddle for bub to go home in.
