I had DD there just over 2 years ago. They provide cloth nappies which are just fine, but bring a few disposables for going home. Also take your own maternity pads, hospital ones are terrible. Apart from that, the usual stuff like toiletries and baby clothes, pyjamas and I'd also take thongs/flip flops for the shower.

Cool thanks! It's my 2nd baby but first at Monash so wasn't sure what baby would need. With baby #1 I only needed an outfit to take baby home in. The midwife was trying to tell me I needed loads of 000 clothes all named/ labeled..? Hmmm any didn't really say anything else. Was like I was trying to make her give out some top secret classified info...

Hollywood how was your experience? Was it super busy hectic & noisy? We're the midwives kind & appropriate?

From memory I had to bring a few disposable nappies for going home (for baby)

I had an operation to remove retained placenta straight after DD's birth, so I got my own room and stayed 3 nights. I had a good experience there, the staff were all really nice, from the doctor who did the operation to the midwives on duty in the ward. DD was born in October, supposedly the busiest month in the maternity hospitals (9 months after the January holidays ), and it was fairly busy I guess, the midwives were pretty flat out. But they were nice

Oh great that's reassuring and glad to hear you had a good experience even if you had a rough time.
