Our maternity services

Every baby’s birth is unique - our caregivers are here to support you and your doctor to meet your personal birthing and care needs. Our maternity and neonatal facilities are some of the finest in the country.

St John of God Berwick Hospital on Kangan Drive features a brand new 22-bed maternity ward with a six-cot special care nursery.

The spacious, light and airy unit helps promote calm and wellbeing for you and your baby with private rooms featuring a built-in sofa bedding for partners, shelving and storage, access to baby bathing and change facilities and ensuite bathrooms.

You also have access to outdoor spaces for convenient access to fresh air and communal spaces for parent education including antenatal education, grandparent classes and other group sessions.

Our Level 3 Special Care Nursery provides care for babies who need a little extra medical attention after being born.

We also have 24-hour access to anaesthetic and paediatric care.
