While you are with us

There is a lot to consider and prepare when you fall pregnant that it can seem a little overwhelming. Let us guide you through.  

Peninsula Private Hospital Maternity Unit has been designed to create surroundings for families that combine the ultimate in comfort and privacy, with modern features and conveniences. All our maternity suites are private and feature:

  • Modern ensuites
  • Tranquil garden outlook and access to courtyard
  • Mini refrigerators
  • Foxtel & WiFi

We understand what a special time in your life this is and we want to make you as welcome and comfortable as possible. Partners are welcome in the Maternity Ward at any time of the day or night.

Sleeping arrangements within the suite are available should partners wish to stay the night for which there is no additional fee.

Our onsite catering services department takes pride in the balanced and delicious meals that we serve. We understand the nutritional needs of new mothers, and are happy to meet dietary requirements. A dietician is available on consultation.

Partners are able to join patients as guests for a meal. We offer a complimentary meal from the standard menu for all partners on the first day, and a daily evening meal for partners who stay in our unit overnight. An onsite Hudson’s Café also offers delicious gourmet meals and hot and cold beverages.

We recognise that the support of family and friends plays an important role in patient recovery and wellbeing.

We welcome visitors to the maternity unit. The Maternity Unit visiting hours are strictly 3.00pm – 4pm and 6.00pm – 8.00pm.

During the rest period between 12.30 pm – 3.00pm, we do not allow visitors or outside phone calls, as all new mothers need time to rest and to establish newborn feeding and settling routines. Partners are welcome to visit at any time.

Visitors electing to park at the hospital are required to take a parking ticket from the car park entrance. Please ensure that you take your ticket with you and pay at the automated pay stations located at the front car park entrance, Building 2 entrance and Lower Ground Consulting Suites prior to returning to your vehicle. Payment by cash or credit and debit cards accepted.

Peninsula Private Hospital has a Hudson's Café in the entrance to the hospital. Here new mums, family and friends can meet and enjoy light meals, snacks and a coffee in friendly, relaxed surroundings.
