San MaternityHaving a baby is an exciting time and you’ll want to make sure that you give your baby the best possible start in life. It’s nice to know that at the Sydney Adventist Hospital in Wahroonga you’re in safe and experienced hands.

You can feel comfortable in the knowledge that we’ve been assisting in the delivery and care of babies for over 100 years and that each year we proudly welcome around 2,000 new little 'San babies' in to the world.

To us, having your baby is more than just the delivery; it’s about the complete birth experience. San Maternity is widely recognised for outstanding patient care, with a solid reputation built on over 110 years of providing quality, wholistic, individualised and compassionate care to mums and babies in our community.

At the San, we have an enviable reputation for outstanding individual care for mothers and babies and pride ourselves on looking after the health and wellness of all our patients. Having a baby is a joyous and momentous occasion and choosing where to have your baby is an important decision. If you are already expecting or just thinking about having a baby, come and visit us to see why so many mothers choose the San each year to have their baby. And if you haven’t found the right doctor to guide you through your pregnancy and birth, give us a call and we’ll help put you in touch with one of our specialist Obstetricians or alternatively you can utilise our Find a Specialist search engine and do your own research.

Visiting hours

Amended San Maternity visiting hours - partner access only:
As a precautionary measure Sydney Adventist Hospital has restricted visitor access to its maternity unit, allowing only the partners of mothers to visit. Partners are allowed to visit anytime.

This is a proactive precautionary measure to protect mothers and babies - the maternity unit is not in lockdown.
