Birthing suites

For that extra measure of safety, a fully equipped operating theatre is nearby to deal with any complications as well as a special care nursery.


Our maternity staff are committed to providing you with informed choices in childbirth.


Our expert team of midwives will provide you and your family with personalised care, advice and support, discussing with you the various choices and facilities available.


Meals may be ordered from the catering service for your partner or support people while you are in labour. Mothers and babies usually stay a few hours in the birthing suites following the birth before being transferred to one of our post natal facilities. The baby remains with the parents at all times, unless transfer to the special care nursery is required.



Special care nursery

The special care nursery is a ten cot high dependency nursery for the care of ill and premature babies.


If your baby does need extra care our team of highly trained professionals will be there to nurture and promote a return to health wherever possible. Our staff work tirelessly and with great dedication and the nursery is staffed around the clock.


We understand the intense feelings and anxieties of parents in these difficult and challenging times, and we are there to offer all the help and assistance possible. We are happy to say that we have seen many babies make wonderful progress and experience an exciting and inspiring homecoming with their family.


Our night nursery is available between 10.30pm and 6.00am daily. Bottle fed babies may have one feed in the nursery overnight. If you are breastfeeding, your baby will be bought back to your room for feeding. 



Epworth Freemasons at Park Hyatt Melbourne


Relax at Park Hyatt Melbourne in exquisite, luxury accommodation after your birth, through our maternity hotel program. Through our commitment to providing high quality, safe care to all mothers and babies we are aware of the need to assist parents and families with the transition to parenthood.  Bonding with your baby is an emotional and amazing experience and we are here to help you on this life-changing journey.

 

The Epworth Freemasons maternity hotel program offers the same level of care as you will receive in hospital in a non clinical, more relaxed environment. If you are eligible, you, together with your partner and baby will be able to spend the remainder of your stay at the hospital in Park Hyatt Melbourne and will be discharged home from the Hyatt.

 

With the consent of your obstetrician, you and your baby will be transferred across to Park Hyatt Melbourne where Epworth Freemason’s experienced midwives staff the hospital in the hotel 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The hotel is luxurious and relaxing, and you can be comforted with the fact that professional, trained staff are there if you need any assistance.
