The birth of a baby is one of the truly special moments in your life. That’s why at Joondalup Health Campus we go out of our way to make this a special time for you and your baby.
At this time you need to feel confident you’re in good hands. The vast training and experience of our doctors and midwives is supported by well equipped facilities. These include our 24-hour on-site laboratory service, adult intensive care facilities and 24-hour anaesthetic, medical and surgical cover in the case of an emergency.
Joondalup Health Campus was Western Australia’s first Baby Friendly Accredited Hospital. We recognise that women have the right to adequate advice, support, encouragement and counselling to successfully breastfeed. Joondalup Health Campus is also a breastfeeding friendly workplace where breastfeeding mothers are entitled to lactation breaks while working.
A member of our maternity ward staff is more than happy to take you on a tour of the birthing suites by request. Please call ahead to make a booking on 08 9400 9486.
FILM EQUIPMENT IN BIRTH SUITE AND THE OPERATING THEATRE
Ramsay Health Care recognises that unique and special moments arise in hospital that patients, families and friends may wish to capture on film. At Joondalup Heath Campus, we need to ensure that patient safety, clinical teamwork, the privacy of other patients, staff members and medical personnel are not compromised. Devices that record both film and sound are not allowed in the operating suite, birth suites or special care nursery.
Single shot devices that do not record sound are permissible by the agreement of the care team members present at the time.
Film and sound may be recorded in the privacy of a patient’s own room, provided the privacy of other patients and staff members is not compromised.
