Neonatal care during COVID-19

Visiting our hospital

Changes to visitor arrangements at our hospitals have been introduced in line with other public hospitals through WA.

As hospitals care for people when they are at their most vulnerable, these changes will help them, our staff and the wider community safe from the spread of COVID-19.

Please read about these changes before attending the hospital.

Neonate Clinical Psychology Service

The impact of having a baby who requires specialised care from our Neonatal Unit can bring additional and unexpected stress and emotional challenges. 

Clinical psychologists in the neonatal team specialise in assessing and treating psychological difficulties during both the perinatal period (the time immediately before and after birth) and those unique to preterm birth and the neonatal experience. Read more about this service.
