After Birth Support

Special Care Nursery

The Special Care Nursery is a level 2 nursery providing any extra care and support that may be required in the event of a baby being born prematurely or who is unwell. If required transfer to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit can be organised without delay.

Please note, people who have only a 'single' level of cover will not receive Health Fund benefits if your baby is admitted to Special Care Nursery. You are advised to contact your Health Fund at least 4 months before your due date for more information and to ensure you have appropriate cover.

Personalised in-room education

Whilst you are with us, a personalised education program will be developed for you and provided in the privacy of your own room. Education topics include sleep and settling, going home with your baby, breastfeeding, and bathing your baby. Partners are always welcomed and encouraged to participate.
