It can be difficult to tell when labour has started but if you are booked to come into Hobart Private Hospital Maternity Unit you are welcome to phone at any time and talk to one of our experienced midwives.
Should you be experiencing strong signs of labour including regular contractions less than ten minutes apart, waters breaking or blood loss, please contact the Maternity Unit to determine how far labour has progressed.
You will be assessed and advised whether to stay home or come to hospital.
During your pregnancy, it is important to contact your obstetrician or the Maternity Unit without delay if you have experience any of the following symptoms:
- Vaginal bleeding
- Ruptured membranes
- Continuous leaking of fluid
- Premature labour prior to 37 weeks
- Unusual or severe abdominal pain
- Blurred vision
- Regular contractions
For any other health issues unrelated to your pregnancy please contact your general practitioner. As always, in the event of a medical emergency please call 000.
