Maternity Care

at Beaudesert Hospital

We provide high quality maternity services for women across our region, with a focus on ensuring the very best care and experience for you and your family.

The Beaudesert Hospital birthing unit has two birthing suites, both with individual ensuites. We have 24/7 obstetric support.

When to come to hospital

Phone the hospital on 5541 9111 and ask for the Birthing Suite if you are in labour or have any other worries about your pregnancy.

If you are less than 20 weeks pregnant and experiencing problems, please contact your own GP or phone the hospital 5541 9111 and ask for the emergency department.

Please phone prior to coming into the Birthing Suite to allow the midwife to assess your progress and prepare for your arrival. Some of the other reasons you may need to come to hospital include if:

  • your waters break
  • contractions become too painful to cope with at home
  • vaginal bleeding occurs
  • your baby is not moving as much as normal
  • you are worried about yourself or your baby.

For admission information and what to pack in your hospital bag, read about coming to hospital.

Photographs and video

In the Birthing Suite, photographing birth is permissible at the request of the labouring mother, provided that this does not conflict with the primary role of the support person. Members of the hospital staff should not be photographed or filmed without their individual consent.

Videoing of births requires the permission of all staff present and must not prevent staff from immediately attending to mother and baby. Please make your request in writing, well before your baby is due by completing the required form. You can discuss this with the midwife in at your antenatal appointments. For safety reasons, photographs of births in the Operating Theatre may be taken by staff only.
