What are our options for maternity hospitals in the Gold Coast area?

Planning a family on the Gold Coast? We’ve compiled a list of maternity hospital options for you.

Choosing a maternity hospital

A lot of consideration goes into choosing the kind of hospital that best suits your needs. Research and going on tours in person is vital. You want to ensure that your birth is as stress-free for you as possible – whatever that means! For some this may mean shared care, for others a water-birth and for others an on-ward, private room birth. Whatever you choose make sure it’s YOUR choice and that it makes you happy.

  1. You forgot the best one of all… Gold Coast Private. It’s incredibly beautiful and the staff are wonderful. They have great technology and a special care nursery, as well as essential oils, salt lamps, and many birth aids available, including an inflatable pool to labour in. A celebratory dinner, daily high tea, and gifts for mum, dad and bub are just some of the little extras that make this option a very special experience.
