Birthing Suite

The San’s maternity unit boasts nine dedicated birthing suites, located on the very top level of the Clark Tower, providing a uniquely tranquil setting for the birth of your baby. Facilities and have been designed to suit individual labour and birthing preferences. Two of the birthing rooms are specifically designed with birthing pools for water births.

Our birthing rooms have easy to use electronic beds to provide support for different positions during labour and birth, ensuites with baths and showers, day beds, flat screen TV’s, along with Foxtel and complimentary wireless internet. To help you have the birthing experience you would like we have facilities such as birth chairs, birth balls, electric aromatherapy burners, microwaves and an ice dispenser.

For those wanting some extra support during labour, gas and epidurals are available upon request. For women who experience a caesarean section birth we provide a service that keeps mother, baby and partner together throughout the caesarean journey. Our 'baby friendly caesarean section' ensures a midwife remains with parents and baby in the Operating Theatre and Recovery to assist with skin to skin contact of baby and mum and the early commencement of breastfeeding.

Make sure you discuss your preferences for labour and birth with your obstetrician.
