Pregnancy is an exciting time for you and your family. Calvary Public Hospital Bruce is committed to meeting your family’s individual needs during your pregnancy, birth and your parenting journey.
Having a baby at Calvary Public Hospital Bruce
The Calvary Maternity Unit is family friendly, and women are encouraged to have their partner or a close friend with them through their labour and birth.
Calvary offers women the choice of the Midwife Led Maternity Care through the Calvary Birth Centre, or a more traditional maternity service.
Please Note: Temporary Relocation of Maternity Inpatient Ward
From 22 February to 30 June 2018 the Maternity Inpatient Ward will be relocated to Level 6 of the Xavier Building (main tower) at Calvary Public Hospital. This will allow an ACT Government funded $2.6M refurbishment project to take place. Women in labour who are booked to birth at Calvary should still present to the Birth Suite on Level 3 of the Marian Building. The Antenatal Clinic remains in its existing location, and the inquiry and contact numbers provided in your Antenatal Care materials are still in use.
We generally conduct tours of the maternity ward on Sundays at 2.30pm. *
*Note you may combine the Calvary Public Hospital Bruce Tour with Calvary Bruce Private Maternity Tour which is generally on Sundays at 3.00pm.
