We have answered some of the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) about maternity and how we are caring for you during this time. Please read this Maternity Patient Information fact sheet.
Pre and post-natal support
Our pre- and post-natal support is designed to help you and your partner prepare for your baby’s arrival, and manage things once you take your baby home. All our patients have access to pre-natal childbirth classes. Our pre-natal education program is conducted by our midwives at the hospital and is designed for you and your partner to prepare for labour, birth, breastfeeding and preparing for managing at home with your baby. You will be given details about this program and class dates when you make your hospital booking.
A women’s health physiotherapist may see you while in hospital.
