When to Call the Hospital

  • If your waters break

  • If you have vaginal bleeding that is not mixed with mucous

  • If the contractions are regular, last more than 30 seconds and are closer than 5 minutes apart

  • If you are frightened or unsure about what is happening

  • If you need pain relief

  • If you do not feel your baby moving

Remember, you can phone the hospital at any time if you have questions or concerns. It is not unusual for some women to have more than one admission before labour is fully established, especially if this is your first baby.

If you have any concerns – please phone

Ashford Labour Ward on (08) 8375 5222 or

Calvary Labour Ward on (08) 8239 9146
