Tours of Our Maternity Unit
Choosing where to have your baby is often a big decision, so it’s important to have the opportunity to see our facilities, get to know our staff and feel comfortable that Norwest Private is the right hospital for you.
Our comprehensive maternity tour is guided by one of our experienced midwives and will include viewing the Birth Suites and the Maternity Suites where you will stay after you give birth. Throughout the tour, you will have an opportunity to ask questions. If you want to talk privately after the tour, this can also be arranged.
Tours are held every Thursday evening from 7.00pm to 8.00pm. These tours are free of charge and no booking is necessary. Meet at the Main Reception in the foyer of Norwest Private at 6.45pm and you will be directed to the Maternity Unit.
Mothers-to-be and one adult support person are welcome to join the tour. It’s best not to bring children on the tour but let us know if you need us to make an exception. If you have questions, send us an email Maternity.Enquiries@healthscope.com.au
Our absolute focus is keeping you safe and healthy, therefore antental classes have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please check in regularly, to see when they’re up and running again.
In the meantime, antenatal courses like Nourish Baby Online are fantastic, and a terrific go-to for information on pregnancy and birthing. Plus, we’ve managed to get you a discount.
