Comfort and calm after childbirth at North Shore Private

With the most double beds of any private maternity hospital in NSW, North Shore Private allows new parents to stay together after their baby is born.

World-class maternity care that feels like home

Giving birth is always a mixed bag of emotions. The joy of welcoming your new baby into the world, the gratitude for the support of your partner or birthing support person, and the exhaustion of having just completed one of life’s most challenging feats!

But as the post-birth calm sets in and the time comes to move from your birthing suite to the ward where you and your baby will rest and be cared for and you usually have to say goodbye to your partner or support person.  At North Shore Private Hospital, however, that goodbye is not necessary as 30 rooms include a double bed so your partner or support person can stay and you can rest together as you adjust to life with your new addition.

Beautiful facilities, deluxe packages, and special celebrations

North Shore Private is home to 7 spacious birthing suites, plus 40 private postnatal rooms with their own ensuites.

Deluxe packages are available to order, including coffee vouchers, gourmet hampers and sparkling water but perhaps the most special item on the menu is a gourmet celebration meal for you and your partner or guest, served in the privacy of your room, to mark the beginning of your new life with a baby before you are discharged.

Meals are carefully and specially crafted with dietary requirements catered for, and nursery staff are part of the deal, so you and your baby are completely cared for while you enjoy your meal.

Expert staff that care like family

When you are giving birth and recovering afterwards, it’s so important to have the right people around you. From expert obstetricians to incredible midwives, lactation consultants, nursery staff and nurses, the staff at North Shore Private are knowledgeable, kind, and happy to take the time to answer questions and make sure both parents and baby are doing well.

You’ll be connected with training and support to learn the basics of parenting, via a suite of options including the Helping Hands Clinic to guide you during the first 12 months of parenthood, Feeding Clinics to support your breastfeeding journey, and an Emotional Wellbeing Program, in association with the Gidget Foundation Australia, focusing on mental health both during and after pregnancy.

While beautiful facilities, expert staff and delicious feasts are all part of the package at North Shore Private, there is something extra special about sharing every moment with your partner or support person as you welcome your baby into your family. Or you could stretch out and enjoy a double bed to yourself! The choice is yours.
