Know My Midwife program
Our new maternity program has been designed for mums-to-be who want additional support from a known midwife. It gives you the opportunity to have additional antenatal appointments with a designated midwife, and have the same midwife present during your labour & birth. You’ll also check back in with her 6 weeks after birth. Find out more about the program here
Maternity Education Programs
Our Maternity Education program helps you prepare for childbirth and parenthood, covering key topics and practical information in a relaxed environment. Presented by an experienced midwife on site at Glengarry Private, the classes also provide you with the opportunity to ask lots of questions as you prepare for this special time in your life. The classes include birthing classes and prenatal classes.
Classes fill quickly, so we recommend booking at around 25 weeks gestation.
For bookings & schedule enquiries, please phone (08) 9447 0111 between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
Postnatal Afternoon Tea
We recognise that having a baby is a joyous yet emotional time. After those first few weeks of settling in at home, you may often have questions or need additional support. We're pleased to invite first-time mums to join us for a group Postnatal Afternoon Tea. Taking place around 4-6 weeks after giving birth, it’s a great opportunity to share your experiences with other Glengarry mums and make new friendships during your journey into early parenthood.
Our midwives will provide more information during your stay.
Our midwives are available at all times to help you establish a good breast feeding routine with your baby. However, we will support and encourage whichever method of feeding you choose.
If you need further assistance with breast feeding during your stay, we can arrange a visit from a lactation consultant.
This is an outpatient service and will attract a fee which may or may not be covered by your health fund. It is best to check with your fund to make sure.
Early Discharge Program
Early discharge is available for eligible families who prefer to go home early. This in-home support encompasses breastfeeding education, baby checks and weighs and post-natal advice.
Capturing those special moments in the days after the birth of your baby is something to treasure.
At Glengarry Private, we’re pleased to offer mums a choice of professional newborn photographers to visit you during your stay.
