Find the Car Parking access for after hours and Emergency- see the RED Phones for help from the Orderlies. We may demonstrate making up the baby bed and have a mini teaching session on safe sleep on the Pods.... for the virtual tour go to .... ....... Parents say they find the tour reassuring and very worthwhile because it takes the stress out of where to go in labour. It is quite a walk and hot in hospital so bring a water bottle and cool clothing.
