Our facilities

Our contemporary maternity service combines traditional childbirth with modern technology and practices, and our state-of-the-art facilities are fully-equipped to ensure you’re well cared for throughout your pregnancy and birth.

We invite you to come and check us out for yourself, so you’re confident in our ability to provide the personalised, quality care you and your baby need. Tours of our maternity unit are conducted regularly. Register for our next available tour through the Events page.



Maternity unit

From the peaceful setting to the facilities, our maternity unit is designed to promote a tranquil, friendly and personalised environment. We have received international recognition as a baby-friendly hospital.

Our maternity unit not only features modern equipment and comforts, it’s supported by a multi-disciplinary group that includes several visiting obstetricians / gynaecologists, paediatricians and midwives. You will also receive one-on-one nursing during your labour.


Birthing Suites

Our birthing suites are equipped to handle all situations. There are three suites available and each one features the latest technology. This includes full water birthing facilities for those interested in a water birth.


Special Care Nursery

The Special Care Nursery is accredited to care for babies requiring specialised care.

We have seven neonatal cots in our Level 4 neonatal care service. Registered nurses / midwives provide expert care for babies with special needs, and paediatricians are available to attend the hospital within minutes.

If your labour commences before 32 weeks into your pregnancy, you may be transferred to a Brisbane hospital because babies born this early may require an Intensive Care Nursery. When your baby no longer requires this treatment your baby may be transferred back to Buderim Private Hospital to grow and develop.

Visiting hours

Your closest friends and family will likely want to see you after your delivery, and help you celebrate the new addition to your family. Visiting hours are from 3pm to 8pm every day.

While we welcome visitors, we also want to stress the importance of rest during your stay. This is a crucial part of your recovery. You will have a rest period every day from 12.30pm to 2.30pm. During this time, partners and your children are welcome to visit; however, other friends and family will not be permitted. We will also hold all phone calls during this time.



Emergency Centre

We offer the Sunshine Coast’s first private Emergency Centre, which provides 24/7 world-class care with minimal wait times, state-of-the-art medical technology and a team of expert physicians.

As one of our patients, you can be transferred to Buderim Private Hospital for emergency obstetric treatment under your treating obstetrician.

Postnatal resources

During your stay after your delivery, our knowledgeable and friendly staff will be on-hand to help you through your recovery. We offer a number of services aimed at improving your health and confidence with your new baby.

Our midwives will be available to support you through feeding and settling your baby. Your obstetrician will also check in with you on most days, and your baby will be checked at intervals by the on-call paediatrician.

You will also be visited by a physiotherapist during weekdays who can assist you with post-baby exercises that will help strengthen your back, core and pelvic floor.

Before your discharge, we will make arrangements for a follow-up appointment approximately six-weeks following your birth to check on your recovery as well as your baby’s progress.


Postnatal depression

Many will tell you that having a baby is a happy experience. This is true, but that doesn’t mean that it comes without challenges.

Having a baby is a major life transformation that requires a lot of preparation. Even then, some mothers can find the experience overwhelming and stressful, which is ok. Everyone’s experience is different and you shouldn’t feel pressure to deny your struggles or try to force yourself to feel happy.

Approximately 10 per cent of women experience postnatal depression. The onset can be anywhere from six-weeks to one-year after your baby is born.

You can find more information about the support we can provide for postnatal depression on our website, or speak to your obstetrician.



Lounge room

In the heart of our maternity ward you will find our Lounge Room – this is a special space where families can come together, or take some time to be apart and let the new mum catch up on some sleep in the privacy of her own room.

In this space you will find a range of literature on pregnancy and birth which you can browse at your leisure. Morning and afternoon tea are also served in this area and it is also the venue for regular education sessions which are presented by our midwives.
