When you arrive, please report to the ward clerk. A midwife will then conduct an initial assessment and contact your GP Obstetrician.

If you are in active labour from 35 weeks of pregnancy, you will be admitted into one of our five birthing suites. If you are in labour before 35 weeks, you may be transferred to another specialist hospital.
