You’ll be pleased to know that we have some of the most experienced, qualified obstetricians in Tasmania who specialise in every type of pregnancy from low-risk to complex births, twins and IVF babies.
If you haven’t yet chosen your obstetrician, you can find a specialist here.
At Hobart Private Hospital, our fantastic team of midwives have decades of experience. Should you need it, you’ll have the use of the Special Care Nursery, created for bubs needing a little extra care and attention. Hobart Private has an emergency department, critical care/high dependency unit and medical and surgical services onsite.
The midwives’ handover is approximately 7.00-7.30am, 2.30-3.00pm and 10.30-11.00pm. The handover involves the team moving through the ward to each patient’s bedside. We encourage you to be involved in discussion and planning of your care.
We’re proud of the team of paediatricians who are part of our community of care, and are confident you’ll be equally impressed. It’s accepted practice that all babies be examined by a paediatrician within the first few days of birth. The examination will occur during your stay and may be at any time of the day.
This cost isn’t included in your hospital stay. Each paediatrician charges independently for their services. There’s usually a minimum of two consultations with the paediatrician while in hospital and follow-up at 6-8 weeks after you go home.
