Meet the Midwives
The first Tuesday of each month, at 6:30pm, you can take a tour of the Ryde Maternity Unit and have a chance to meet the midwives as well as hear about a birth from a recent mum. The meeting point is at the entrance of the maternity unit at Ryde Hospital.
WoW (Women on Wednesday)
Each Wednesday morning, from 10am until 11am, women who plan to birth at Ryde or those who were cared for by Ryde midwives meet-up in the VMO lounge.
“WOW”, short for Women on Wednesdays, is a group for mums and mums-to-be to drop in and have a chat. This is an opportunity to meet other women who have recently given birth through Ryde, or who will shortly give birth to their babies. You can share ideas and explore relevant issues. One of the midwives is always there to facilitate informal discussion and help answer any questions that arise. It is a great place to touch base with others going through the same life experience and make some friends.
