Your Stay

Brisbane Early Parenting Centre is open for admission to newborn babies from the age of 4 weeks. As our centre has shared communal spaces, we are unable to safely allow admission of infants who are not vaccinated (in line with the National Immunisation Program, Queensland Schedule) to the centre.


The Brisbane Early Parenting Centre is a secure unit, located in North West Private Hospital. It has 7 private rooms. Parents admitted to the Brisbane Early Parenting Centre are accommodated in their own private room with ensuite with their infant and/or toddler in the same room.

Also provided is an LCD television with Foxtel, Wi-Fi and bar fridge.

The centre has a safe play area for infants and toddlers. Parents will also have access to a kitchenette within the unit.
