Maternity: Going Home / preparation for discharge
Going Home / preparation for discharge
For your baby's safety, please have your car fitted correctly with a car restraint before going home. This is a requirement by law.
You should expect a call from a maternal child health nurse shortly after discharge. This person will be a valuable resource for you as you come to grips with the challenges of parenthood.
A 24hr Maternal and Child Health line operates in Victoria.
Telephone 132 229 to access this service.
An outstanding support to assist with breast feeding issues and concerns is available through the Australian Breast Feeding Association.
Your local doctor should also be considered a resource and is a valuable support in the community.
Don’t hesitate to contact the midwives at Peninsula Private if you have any issues or concerns following your discharge from hospital. Telephone the maternity unit on 9788 3468 24 hrs a day
