Royal North Shore Hospital
Address: Reserve Rd, St Leonards NSW 2065
Phone: 02 9926 7111

"Royal North Shore Hospital group practice midwives is wonderful and the clinic there that looks after women who have difficult pregnancies. Amazing!" - SMG member

"I had an incredible experience through the whole pregnancy and delivery of my son at Royal North Shore Public. My baby had jaundice and I stayed with my husband for 10 days unexpectedly. They took care of us, checked on us every 2 hours and not just medically, they also ensured my mental health was going well, as after 10 days in the hospital not going outside can be overwhelming for a new mum and also for my husband. They sent different professional help while we stayed, physiotherapist for my after delivery recovery, nurses often, midwives and finally the pediatrician to ensure we could leave the hospital just when my son was with low levels of bilirubin. The care and love they put in every detail made our experience great!" - SMG member

Mater Hospital

Norwest Private Hospital
Address: 11 Norbrik Dr, Bella Vista NSW 2153
Phone: 02 8882 8883

"Loved the modern atmosphere of Norwest and the staff in the Special Care Nursery were brilliant when our premmie baby had to stay there for 6 weeks. Did have a negative experience with a nurse who was "amazed" that I couldn't push out my little baby who was breech although." - SMG member

"Norwest Private Hopsital was excellent - I had both my daughters there and I could not fault it. Facilities are great and the rooms look similar to a hotel than a hospital. Staff were all great too. They promoted breastfeeding and assisted with this, but also helped the mums (from what I observed) that were struggling to breastfeed and needed/chose formula. I had straight forward births with no problems, but would recommend from my experience." - SMG member


Prince of Wales Private Hospital
Address: Barker St Randwick NSW 2031
Phone: 02 9650 4000

"Terrific experience, particularly enjoyed being able to stay in a hotel for a few nights after the birth where a midwife would come and check on us to make sure we were all ok." - SMG member


Westmead Public Hospital

Westmead NSW 2145
