Whenever possible, appointments to see the multi-disciplinary team of health professionals can be scheduled concurrently with your antenatal check-up visit.
After your delivery, Dr Ken Law will arrange for his post-natal midwife to visit you at home to ensure that there are no ongoing issues, such as with baby settling or with breastfeeding, and to check your baby’s growth. Dr Law’s postnatal midwife will weigh your newborn at your home, and give you great tips for sleep routines and parenting. There are no out-of-pocket cost to you for these post-natal home visits.

Dr Ken Law is also a fully credentialed Visiting Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at the Mater Hospital in South Brisbane, which is about 7 minutes drive from Greenslopes. For deliveries of babies under 32 weeks gestation, and for babies who will be born with an estimated weight of under 1.5 kg (~3.3 lb), Dr Ken Law will continue to be your Obstetrician looking after you, and will be able to deliver your baby at the Mater Hospital.

Greenslopes Maternity opened in February 2013, and is the newest maternity unit in Brisbane for over a decade. It aims to provide five-star service in a five-star hotel-style accommodation. It offers state of the art, modern amenities, and all newly built private rooms are equipped with the finest facilities. It is the newest maternity service in Brisbane.
New Dads can also share in the experience, and are encouraged to stay with the new Mum and Baby at Greenslopes Maternity, with half of all rooms incorporating a electrically adjustable Queen-size bed for a comfortable stay. All rooms have ensuite bathrooms, Wifi Internet, Large TVs with Foxtel, coffee machines and iPod docking stations.
As an Obstetrician and as a father, Dr Ken Law understands that new parents need some time to rest, and whilst rooming-in with your newborn is important, a Well Baby Nursery caters for your need to get some rest when required. Greenslopes is one of the very few maternity units in Brisbane to offer this service. Many women stay for up to 5 nights after a Caesarean delivery, and up to 4 nights after a Vaginal delivery. Because of how comfortable the facilities at Greenslopes Maternity are, a few of the new mums and dads have requested longer stays in the new unit, but unfortunately most private health funds do not allow for this, unless a longer hospital stay is required for clinical indications!
