About St John of God Burwood Hospital - Mother & Baby Unit
St John of God Hospitals at Burwood and Richmond have been providing assistance to women and their families with perinatal and postnatal mental health services since 1984. We offer an holistic approach to care during the childbearing period and have the mental well-being of women and their families at the core of our work.
Our treatment of mental health conditions in women during the childbearing period takes into account each woman’s individual circumstances and wherever possible includes partners, children and the infant.
We respect all women’s rights in relation to privacy, advocacy and treatment. The safety and well-being of infants and children always remain central. We listen and offer support, reassurance and understanding and are able to discuss with you and your family the range of different treatment options available.
