Hand hygiene is one important factor in preventing hospital infections.

You can also help by performing hand hygiene as you enter and leave a healthcare facility and when visiting a ward.

Hand hygiene stations are located on every ward and throughout Nepean Hospital.


About the Postnatal Unit

We have a 24 bed Postnatal Unit. Our dedicated postnatal team are here to provide you support and care after the birth of your baby.

You will stay between 4 and 24 hours after a normal vaginal birth; and 48 hours after a caesarean birth.

We offer educational sessions such as bathing demonstrations, infant feeding support and assistance with parenting skills.

Upon discharge from the postnatal ward, we offer a ‘Midwifery at Home’ service for all women who reside within the Penrith Local Government Area. Our experienced midwives provide ongoing support and education in the comfort of your own home. 

If you live outside the Penrith Local Government Area we will refer you to alternative follow up services.
