Visitors are welcome. Your baby’s birth is an exciting time for everyone. But all new parents need some time alone with their babies and new mums in particular, need plenty of rest. Our rest time is 1.00pm–2.30pm daily. During this time we keep the ward as quiet as possible, and ask visitors and phone calls to be planned for outside of this time.
If you are planning a visit, we recommend you check with the new parents, or speak with our maternity staff prior to your arrival. Please be mindful that visiting for extended periods, or visits later in the evening, can be tiring for new new mums who are caring for their new baby. Always keep young children under supervision during your visit and be mindful of other new parents who may be resting in the ward.
