We care for families – right from the start

We are very pleased you are going to have your baby at our hospital. It is a privilege to share your birth experience.

Our approach is ‘family-centred’ – that means, we try to give you the kind of birth experience you want. We support your right to make decisions based on your own beliefs and values. We provide personal care, education, and support according to your needs and wishes.

Our goals are:

  • to help you during your pregnancy, labour, and birth
  • to provide a safe and caring environment
  • to help you with early parenting

The first few days with your baby are important. Staying together is the best way to begin your first precious days as a family. We want you to have a great start together.


You’re expecting a baby. Congratulations!
