I was transferred to swan a few hours after I gave birth and ended up checking us out after being there about 5 hours- it was awful. The facilities were shockingly lacking, I would never attend that hospital for anything birth related. As an example the ward I was on had access to 2 tiny toilets with no pads or bins available, and one full size toilet with a bin on the other side of the large cubicle.
The midwives ignored us until I signed out. The pediatrician was patronizing and imo incompetent. My DS needed an x-ray for his kidneys straight away but they stuffed us around for 5 days.
As we were leaving we had a conversation with a birthing woman's mother who was complaining that the midwives were very slow and not attentive as her daughter had to ask multiple times for pain relief.
Horrible experience! Please look into joondalup!
