View Full Version : King Edward Memorial Hospital Perth
Hello Mum's and Dad's,
Just wondering if there is anybody out there who had their baby or babies at King Edward Memorial Hopsital in Subi?
I am due to have my baby in the next couple of weeks and I am curious as to what people thought of their labour and stay there?
Would anybody go there a second time? All feedback, good and bad would be appreciated!!
i had my antenatal classes ther and they were great, i had a friend who had a breech (feet first) bub there in jan and she was happy with how it all went, except doc wanted her to have ceaser and she practically had to fight them to get natural birth.
I have just moved to WA and am booked into KEMH to have my baby next month... so all the feedback about this hospital is great...
I have only been there once, to book in, and am due back next week for a normal appt.....
If anyone else has any feedback about KEMH that would be great..

Hi there i had my son a KEMH and they were fantastic, my midwives where bev and claire, i remembered their names cause they were so great, im pregnant with bub number 2 and I am definatly going back there without a doubt! Best of luck :)
just wanted to drop a line and let you know that I had an apt with the hospital yesterday and due to my blood pressure they had me moniterd (SP?) for 3 hours....
and I must say that the midwifes were wonderful, It really put my mind at rest having met some of them and seeing what they were like on the ward ect....they were wonderful!!!
Hope everyone is traveling well....I have only a few weeks left and the baby is engaged and the doc said that it could be any day now (or it might not happen for another 4 -6 weeks!!!)
if you want a perspective from a Dad...
Hospital and staff were the best, couldnt have asked for more.
Everyone was very understanding as this was our first and we had heaps of questions, as you would expect....
Antenatal classes were also great, unfortunately missed out on the last few as bub came early.
Would have one comment that i would like to make and I know the reasons why but....i think that the fathers should not be treated as Visitors when both mum and bub are back on the ward, each day i would get thrown out at 12:00 and then out again at 8:00pm, yes i know that this is because family need their rest but when you are alone and this is your first naturally you want to stay..appart from that no complaints.
I say go for it.
we did the hospital tour last night and it was great.....Mark I have to agree, my husband and I were a little dissapointed that he would also be treated as a visitor!!!
I hope all is going well for everyone else...
3 weeks to go!!!
my sisiter (12 years ago mind you) was born at King Eddie and my mum raves about her experience there. i was 13 at the time and was lucky enough to be there whenmy sis came into the world. we all have terrific memories of the entire experience.
I had a choice of KEMH or SJOG - Subiaco and decided SJOG but have heard good reviews regarding KEMH. My obny was based at either KEMH or SJOG
If you don't mind me asking who are you booked under at SJOG?
Just thought I would post this now....
3 days after doing our tour of KEMH I was admitted and induced to have Mackenzie.....3 weeks early...
and I just wanted to say how wonderful they all were.....i had great staff during my whole stay there...(we were there 7 days)...
anyway, just wanted to let everyone know of my most recent trip there...
hope all is well...and good luck

I cant praise KEMH enough, i have to go there every week untill my hcg levels go down after a recent D&C, and they are fantasic, they are so suportive and dedicated to there job, they dont make it as bad as it seems. :)
Jenny, sorry for your loss. I'm glad the staff at KEMH have been so good to you.
My aunt had all 4 of her children at KEMH and found them to be wonderful.
I had my 2 children at Armadale-Kelmscott Memorial Hospital. The first time it wasn't too good because the hospital was really old, but by the time I had my son the hospital had been rebuilt and it was great. The rooms have only 2 beds, and each room has an ensuite, changing and bathing facilities and a balcony. The staff were very helpful and handled my very quick labour very well.
I had both my sons at King Eddie's and cant say how much they helped and were suppotive. My first son was premmie and very sick and was in ICU for 4 weeks...They treated him as if he was the only baby there. I was very ill myself for 2 weeks and had to stay in and they treated me as if I was the only patient. My second son was unfortunatley sent to the Angels before we got to meet him(I was 5 months along) but we had him there too. We were treated with the upmost respect, dignity and love.They allowed us to hold him for as long as we wanted and NEVER ONCE told us how to feel, react, or behave.They let us deal with our loss ourselves in OUR WAY but were always there if we needed them.Even AFTER we came home. My son was treated as if he were the most rarest diamond on earth.He is now with the other gems in the baby rose garden I will be having our next bub there in April 2006 and wouldn't have it any other way.There is no other hospital, midwives, nurses,doctors or interns in any other place that will respect you AND your husband and your wishes. Enjoy your experience there and Love Joy Happiness Health and Completeness to you your husband and your bub.
Dr Simon Turner was my obny. Jessica is nearly 9mths old
