Having a baby is one of the most important events in your life and every birth is unique. Your care whilst in Westmead Private is co-ordinated by your Obstetrician. Westmead Private encourages women and families to have flexibility and choice with a focus on individualised care.
The Birthing Suite
The Birthing Suite comprises large modern birthing rooms that ensure a personal and safe environment for your birthing experience. There are a total of six birthing suites featuring large en-suites and shower facilities. Labouring women and their partners are offered many flexible choices to ensure a positive and safe birthing experience.
We encourage your partner and/or support person to be involved in your care during labour and overnight facilities are provided in each Birthing Suite.
Maternity Ward (including both Antenatal & Postnatal)
The Maternity Ward has 32 beds, ten of which feature double beds. We offer our maternity patients the guarantee of a private room following the birth of your baby.
We also offer a Parent Education Room and an Infant Feeding and Support Centre with a Well Baby Nursery.
Well Baby Nursery
The Infant Feeding and Support Centre offers respite care overnight if required. There is a limit on the number of babies in the nursery at any one time and it is expected that the babies will return to their mother for feeding. The service is available from 11pm until 6am.
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 unwell, transfer to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit can be organised without delay.
