Foetal Monitoring Service
To monitor your baby's heart rate and uterine contractions a Foetal Monitoring Service is offered within the Maternity Unit. This service is managed by highly skilled and experienced midwives.
We offer a Cardiotocograph (CTG) clinic should you and your baby require specialised monitoring.
Special Care Nursery
Our team of paediatricians and experienced neonatal nursing staff care for unwell and premature babies (from 32 weeks) in our Special Care Nursery. Our modern nursery provides specialised equipment and reduces the likelihood of you and your baby being separated.
There are many reasons why a baby requires admission to a Special Care Nursery. They may have been born prematurely (before 37 completed weeks) or are unwell. This means that extra nursing care is required and this extra care is provided in the Special Care Nursery within Waverley Maternity at Waverley Private Hospital.
We understand the admission of your baby to the Special Care Nursery environment may generate concern and many questions. As the care and comfort of you and your baby are our primary concerns, we are pleased to provide important information on our Special Care Nursery Services.
The Special Care Nursery at Waverley Private Hospital is a Level 2 nursery that is able to provide specialised care for babies born from 32 weeks. Experienced midwives and neonatal nurses staff the unit 24 hours a day and are supported by a team of experienced paediatricians and neonatologist. They have an on call roster 24 hours a day, 7 days a week offering parents the reassurance of the best quality expert care.
In the event your baby becomes unwell or requires increased monitoring your baby will be transferred from our Special Care Nursery to a tertiary hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
When your baby no longer requires this higher level of care they may be transferred back to Special Care Nursery at Waverley Private Hospital.
