Maternity

At St Vincent's we understand that having a baby is one of life’s most precious moments and our experienced maternity team is on hand 24/7 to support and guide you every step of the way as you bring your baby into the world.

Our midwifery team has a wealth of experience and knowledge to ensure our mothers enjoy the highest standard care possible throughout their antenatal, birthing and post-natal journey.

The Dorothea Devine Maternity Unit is serviced by six private Obstetricians, four private Paediatricians and 24 hour Intensive Care coverage. For newborns requiring special observation, treatment or care, the unit is also supported by a Special Care Nursery.

The facilities in the St Vincent's Dorothea Devine Maternity Unit are modern and comfortable and include 22 single ensuited rooms and six double rooms (shared). 

Within the unit we have four labour wards, two assessment rooms and a three bed recovery area for post caesarean care.

The unit runs antenatal classes on-site as well as a weekly Lactation Clinic.

All maternity areas are located on the ground floor of the facility, accessible via Entrance 1 (off Scott Street).
