Mother and baby unit
The focus of the St Helen’s Private Hospital Mother Baby Unit is on support and expert care for families experiencing ante-natal and post-natal difficulties. Either the mother or the baby from birth to 12 months of age can be admitted. Our expert, friendly team of midwives, child health and mental health nurses work with families to restore confidence and abilities in self-care and parenting. Lactation nurses, paediatricians, psychologists and psychiatrists are also available for consultation.
They offer comprehensive skills in assessment, counselling and education, and provide medical care in a relaxed environment. Care is tailored to the needs of mother, baby and family in areas such as:
- Ante-natal or post natal anxiety or depression
- Feeding or weaning
- Infant sleeping and settling
- Unsettled and/or irritable infant
- Reflux and colic
Each of the 8 private rooms have ensuites and adjacent baby rooms and there is a spacious shared lounge and play area.
