When the exciting time arrives to take your baby home, we will assist you with your transition into parenthood
On discharge from our maternity unit, you will receive comprehensive information to help you with your next steps. This will include details of community support and parenting help contacts, plus information on your local child health centre.
Discharge time is from 10am to enable us to prepare the room for incoming admissions. We are able to accommodate you in our hospital foyer should your transportation arrangement differ from our discharge time. Please ensure your transport home has been fitted with a child safety seat.
All postnatal / Follow Up care with the public hospital Extended Care Midwifery Service will be arranged prior to your discharge.
Ensure you take all personal belongings, medications, flowers and discharge documents with you.
