Nursery Care


We deliver at Ashford Hospital because they provide the best standard of care for you and your baby in a private hospital.


Ashford Hospital is the only private hospital in South Australia that can care for babies delivered as early as 32 weeks gestation.


The hospital also has the added reassurance of 24/7 onsite medical cover and an adult intensive care unit in the case of an emergency.


If there happens to be a complication with your delivery, then Ashford Hospital’s accredited paediatricians, neonatologists and dedicated nursery and ICU staff will look after you and your baby.


If at any stage during your pregnancy, we believe your baby needs to be born at a hospital with a higher level of nursery care, we can discuss a transfer with you to Flinders Medical Centre, where we maintain admitting rights so we can safely deliver your baby.


If you have any concerns about the health of your baby or your delivery, please call Adelaide Obstetrics & Fertility (between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm Monday to Friday) on 08 8272 7755 or (outside of our office hours) Ashford Hospital Delivery Suite on 08 8375 5237.
