What do the videos show?

The videos, which total 21 minutes in length and can be found here, and help prepare parents for the birth of their child.

These videos show what to expect before, during and after their baby arrives at Richmond Hospital and include:

  • What to bring to the hospital

  • Where to park

  • Layout of the Birth Centre and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

  • Where your support person can stay during the birth

  • The birthing process itself

  • Resources available to support mothers and their families preparing to return home with a new baby

What is Richmond Hospital’s Birth Centre?

Richmond Hospital’s Birth Centre features a maternity-specific operating room, a post-surgery recovery area and 15 single-room maternity care rooms, which provide best practice standards to support new families. It is estimated that approximately 2,200 women will give birth at Richmond Hospital this year.
