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 6.30pm to 7.30pm and every second Saturday from 3.00pm to 4.00pm. These tours are free of charge and you need to register to attend. Meet at the Main Reception in the foyer of Norwest Private 15 minutes before the start of the tour and you will be directed to the Maternity Unit.
Mothers-to-be and one adult support person are welcome to join the tour.
Due to COVID restrictions, each tour will be limited to eight couples so booking is essential. Request a booking by sending an email to Maternity.Enquiries@healthscope.com.au with your mobile number.
You’ll then get a confirmation email with the date of the tour that you are booked in.
