About Swaddle

SWADDLE maternity package at the San

An Australian first - beginning to end private hospital maternity care with ZERO out-of-pocket costs*

Sydney Adventist Hospital, fondly known as the San, is pleased to offer Swaddle - a comprehensive maternity package with no out-of-pocket costs. Swaddle is special - it is a new 'bundled' private maternity package that includes all the typical services you would expect to need during your pregnancy and delivery. There is no compromise on your private obstetrician led care, ultrasound or blood tests or your hospital stay with us.

Swaddle is being offered in collaboration with HCF - Australia's largest not-for-profit health fund. The package is currently available to any HCF member with the appropriate maternity cover who has served their 12 month waiting period.  You'll also get your choice of one of our participating remarkable San Obstetricians, who will provide their existing high quality care throughout your entire pregnancy and birth.

Why Swaddle?

As a not-for-profit hospital, the San is always striving to offer the best care possible to its patients. We understand that private maternity care can be expensive, and would like as many people as possible to be able to access the wonderful service we provide. Our remarkable doctors, San Ultrasound for Women (a partnership with Ultrasound Care Australia) and HCF understand this, and have collaborated with us to make the Swaddle San Baby Bundle possible.

The San has been delivering babies since first opening its doors in 1903, and is proud of its long-standing reputation for providing quality maternity care. Swaddle is another Australian first for the San: all-inclusive private maternity care, providing comfort and the ability to focus on your pregnancy journey without the concern of unexpected costs*.

Swaddle package inclusions:


Hospital Stay & Services

  • All delivery theatre costs in our state-of-the-art birthing suites, as well as your postnatal stay on our maternity ward. During your hospital stay, you will have access to all the normal educational classes (ie breastfeeding, baby care etc) and the experience of our exceptional San midwives


  • The package includes a dating, early structural/ nuchal scan, morphology and all necessary growth scans needed as part of the patient’s pregnancy journey at San Ultrasound for Women or Ultrasound Care Australia locations (excluding non-standard procedures and services not covered by Medicare).

Pathology Testing

  • All required pathology tests (excluding optional chromosomal abnormality tests) through San Pathology and DHM

Anaesthetist and Assistant Surgeon

  • Any required anaesthetic care as part of your vaginal or caesarean delivery, as well as the assistant surgeon (if required)


  • Any care your baby receives from a paediatrician during your maternity admission

Special Care Nursery

  • If your baby requires admission to our special care nursery and for this to be covered, you will need to ensure that you have added your baby to your private health fund cover within 2 months after the baby's date of birth  

*Swaddle covers all out-of-pocket costs typical for private maternity care. However, sometimes the unexpected can occur. If this happens, you may have additional costs not covered by this package depending on your health fund cover and the specialists involved in your care. HCF eligibility rules and the excess payable on your policy both apply.
