Frequently asked questions

Our parent education classes cover many aspects of pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and early parenting. These relaxed, informal classes hosted by experienced midwives offer you a safe environment to learn, share and ask questions. 

Please contact us for more details on our parent education program.

We offer free tours of our maternity unit, providing you with an inside look at our facilities and services.

You can participate in a maternity unit tour by:

  • attending a scheduled tour offered by our hospital - you may need to pre-book
  • registering for an antenatal (pre-birth) parent education class - many of these include a tour.

Please contact us for more information on our maternity unit tours.

Your obstetrician will forward your hospital registration papers to us once they are complete. We will then contact you with details on any further booking-in requirements.

Registered patients are welcome to contact our maternity unit with pregnancy-related concerns or questions they might have.

A registered midwife will assess your situation and refer you to the most appropriate service.

For example, they might:

  • invite you in to the maternity unit for a further check or to begin your labour
  • recommend you present to an emergency department for specialised medical care
  • advise you to liaise with your obstetrician or GP.

Please contact us if you:

  • have any concerns related to your pregnancy
  • think you are in labour
  • are experiencing any blood loss from your vaginal area or a rupture of membranes (‘waters breaking’)
  • have a severe headache and/or visual disturbances such as blurred vision
  • experience intense abdominal pain
  • notice reduced baby movements.
