RPA-Naamuru Parent and Baby Unit

Service Description

Naamuru is a purpose-built unit located at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney with eight inpatient beds opened 24 hours, 7 days per week. Inpatient services are available for parents who are experiencing significant mental health problems in the perinatal period (before, during and after birth), and who are the primary care-giver for their baby (up to 12 months of age). The parent and their baby are admitted together to facilitate maximum opportunity for healthy attachment and to minimise the trauma of separation. Partners or alternate support person are encouraged to stay overnight to support the care-giving and parent-baby relationship.
