It’s official, the Central Coast’s newest and only private maternity service is open!
Gosford Private Maternity Services officially opened its doors recently welcoming our next generation of parents and families.
Bateau Bay couple Kurt and Cassie were our very first family to experience an individualised birth in our new, luxurious birthing suites.
Indiana was welcomed into the world in one of our spacious immersion baths under the guidance and care of Dr Peta Skilbeck and our skilled midwives.
Cassie told us that they chose to birth at Gosford Private Maternity Services because they wanted individualised care for her pregnancy and birth journey.
“I didn’t want to be just another number, I wanted to receive a higher standard of care and we had some very specific ideas in mind for our birth plan,” Cassie said.
“It made all the difference that we could receive support and encouragement to birth how we wanted to, with care and compassion.
“I love that the birthing suites don’t feel cold and clinical and instead feel really warm and intimate.
“We have been made to feel like a part of the family here and the individualised care has been consistent from birth to the postnatal ward.”
Maternity Unit Manager Robyn Gasparotto said it has been an absolute dream to share the new ward with families.
“This world class facility has been designed and developed with families in mind, to offer intimate, individualised and comfortable care in luxurious surrounds,” Ms Gasparotto said.
“We’ve had an amazing first week and we are so proud to offer premium care to families as the Central Coast’s only private maternity service.”
Natasha, Matt and Baby Monica were among our last families to transition into the new Postnatal suites and shared that they have felt part of the family.
“The new ward provides such a beautiful intimate setting so it’s the perfect start to our lives as a new family,” Natasha said.
“The transition to the new unit has been so smooth and without a doubt, the best partner accommodation we could have hoped for, these Murphy Beds make all the difference.”
The new luxuriously appointed maternity ward features three spacious and modern birthing suites equipped with immersion baths and partner accommodation and are located in prime position next to our brand new Level 2 Neonatal Special Care Nursery.
Able to take unwell babies born from 32 weeks, the Special Care Nursery is equipped with state of the art facilities including bubble CPAP ventilation system and on-site experienced Paediatricians and Neonatologists.
With extended five to six night stays available for all birthing parents and partners, which include around the clock support, murphy beds and meals and snacks for partners, the private postnatal suites provide the ideal place to start your new life as a new family unit.
According to Maternity Unit Manager, Robyn Gasparotto, another exciting milestone was also reached recently, with the birth of our first set of twins.
“We are a specialised, dedicated and personalised service that is focused on providing a tailored pregnancy, birthing and postnatal experience,” Ms Gasparotto said.
“Everyone is different, everyone has different values or priorities and our focus at Gosford Private Maternity Services is to make sure that those who birth with us, feel their needs and priorities are met to provide the ideal experience for them.
“Our birthing families aren’t numbers to us, they are like family and it’s a privilege to be there helping them on this journey.”
