Maternity Services

St Andrew’s Ipswich Private Hospital provides comprehensive Maternity services to Ipswich, the surrounding communities and suburbs on the western side of Brisbane.

A full maternity service is offered with antenatal classes for parents leading up to the birth, one on one midwifery care during and post labour, along with education and support for the initial care for your baby and specialised lactation assistance for new mothers. We also conduct a Well Baby Clinic that provides continuing parenting education and support during the first twelve weeks after you leave the hospital.

Our twenty six bed Maternity Unit offers modern comfortable rooms with ensuites including five double rooms and space for rooming in. Partners are welcome and are encouraged to participate and be involved.

Our unit has three luxurious and fully-equipped birthing suites with Visy massage showers, a nursery with neonatal cots for babies requiring special care after delivery. Specialist Paediatricians are available to attend deliveries as required and provide clinical assessment of your baby during your stay.

Our Maternity unit is supported by a number of experienced Obstetricians who provide personalised care to each couple and they support each other to ensure safe clinical care is provided twenty four hours a day, across each seven day week.
