Please note due to the terms of both Sue's contract for visiting rights at LMH and of her Professional Indemnity Insurance cover, she cannot offer home births as part of the service.

Sue's PPM agreement allows her to work with the well-equipped and recently upgraded facilities at the Lyell McEwin Hospital, which is located in northern Adelaide. Sue can support your labour and birthing choices in either the Birthing and Assessment Unit Low Risk (Birth Centre) or the Birthing and Assessment Unit High Risk (Delivery Suite) at the LMH.

Low risk women can use the Birth Centre, which offers large rooms with double beds to accommodate partners and large showers and baths for the use of water throughout labour and/or birth.

The Delivery Suite is usually reserved for women with potential pregnancy or birth risk factors, or those wanting an epidural for labour. Both areas offer early discharge from hospital after 4 - 6 hours post-birth. Sue can also arrange a tour of the LMH if you would like to view the facilities.

If you require further information or have any specific queries, please do not hesitate to contact Sue via phone or email.
