Parenting Course In Melbourne
What is the Parenting Program at Grand Hyatt Melbourne?
The Parenting Program at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne is an exciting choice available to new mothers. You and your baby can leave the hospital together and continue to enjoy postnatal care in a hospital-assimilated environment in the five-star luxury of the magnificent Grand Hyatt Melbourne.
This service is an extension of Ramsay Health Care’s Frances Perry House and is fully supported by Frances Perry House and our own highly qualified and experienced staff.
Following your baby’s birth, and provided you have had a birth without complications, your obstetrician may give approval for you to be transferred to Grand Hyatt Melbourne. You and your baby remain patients of Frances Perry House throughout your stay at both facilities. During your stay at Grand Hyatt Melbourne, you and your baby “room” together at all times.
From time to time and at the discretion of Frances Perry House Management, the Parenting Program at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne is not operational and therefore not available for patients to access.
