When to contact us

Please telephone the Women’s Health Unit before coming to Hospital or if you have any concerns. Our midwife on duty will be able to advise you when it is necessary for you to come in and answer any questions you may have. It is very important to contact the Maternity Unit on (07) 4052 5232 if you experience any of the following:

  • Ruptured membranes or continuous leaking of fluid
  • Bright red bleeding
  • Regular contractions
  • Premature labour i.e. prior to 37 weeks
  • Unusual or severe abdominal pain
  • Any concerns about baby’s movements

Please feel welcome to contact us at any time during your pregnancy if you have any concerns.

Overnight, the doors to the hospital are locked for security purposes and you will need to use the telephone to the right hand side of the front door for access to the hospital. Parking is available around the hospital. However, if you are in strong labour, your partner is welcome to park at the front entrance to the hospital for a short period.   If you are in strong labour, phone us and we will meet you at the front door.  We ask that the vehicle be moved as soon as possible to avoid obstructing emergency vehicles.
