COVID-19 Change to Maternity services information

Our maternity unit has a restriction on the number of people who can visit.

Unvaccinated partners or support people supporting a birthing mother are required to follow specific conditions:

  • Only one unvaccinated partner/support person can attend an antenatal appointment.
  • An unvaccinated partner and support person are permitted in the birthing suite and must follow the instructions of the midwife about socially distancing and restricting movements to nominated areas.
  • The unvaccinated partner/support person must wear a single-use surgical face mask and limit their movements to areas where they can safely physically distance from others.
  • Any unvaccinated partner who stays overnight in the ward with mum and bub must have a COVID-19 test within 24 hours of entering the hospital.

Find out more about the hospital visitors restrictions in place. Everyone entering the Maternity Unit needs to thoroughly clean their hands at the ward entrance. Thank you for your understanding as we protect the safety of all our patients and your precious babies.
