Having a baby is one of the most important events in your life and every birth is unique. Cairns Private encourages women and families to have flexibility and choice with a focus on individualised care.
The Maternity Ward has 17 beds, four of which feature spacious family size rooms, with all offering accommodation for partners to stay. We offer the guarantee of a private room and ensuite following the birth of your baby.
Maternity Lounge and Parenting Education Area
We also offer a Maternity lounge room with childrens play area with tv, fridge, couch and dining area. Education sessions on breastfeeding, parenting support and individualised sessions are held in this area.
Special Care Nursery
The Special Care Nursery is a Level 2 nursery providing any extra care and support that may be required. Our Special Care Nursery offers Respiratory support services by consultant Paediatricians, Neonatologists and experienced nurses and midwives. In the event of a baby being born very premature or unwell, transfer to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit can be organised without delay.
