On the day of discharge, your obstetrician and paediatrician will each approve you and your baby clinically fit to go home. Discharge time is generally between 9am – 10.30am.
You will be given your baby’s health record, K2 maternity discharge summary and any discharge medication that you require.
It’s normal for new mothers to feel a little anxious about taking baby home. Every mother at Gold Coast Private Maternity receives two complimentary in-home visits from our highly experienced midwives, post birth. In addition to general check-ups, it’s a great opportunity for new parents to ask any questions they like. Plus, we’re available
at any time, day or night to answer your questions, call (07) 5530 0300.
Before discharge we will provide you with the relevant community services available to you.
It is the law in Australia that all children are restrained according to height and age when travelling by car.
The restraint should meet the Australian and New Zealand Standards. Ensure that your baby’s car seat is installed prior to your due date. Click here for more information.
