The Mater

Going Home

Your doctor and midwifery staff will confirm when you and your baby are ready to go home. Expected discharge is Day 4 for uncomplicated births and Day 6 for caesarean births.

Discharge time is 9.30 am.

Before leaving the hospital please visit the Patient Services Area on the Ground Floor in order to finalise your account. Your partner is able to do this on your behalf.

Before taking your baby home for the first time, please ensure your car is correctly fitted with an Australian Standards Approved Car Restraint/Seat for a safe journey home.
