St John of God Hospital (SJOG) in Subiaco is the first to take delivery of the Cloth Nappy Antenatal Demo Kit, in a collaborative project between Green Skills and Perth hospitals.
Parents have told us they want this information in antenatal classes, so they can be prepared before baby is born – and Judith, SJOG midwife and parent educator, agrees.
With 10 kits to be delivered over the next 6 months, these new and up-to-date kits will be key to educating expecting parents. What do modern cloth nappies look like? How do they work? How do you wash them? Times have changed from terry squares, pins and soaking in bleach! We give midwives a full introduction when we deliver the Cloth Nappy kit.

This project, “Educating Antenatal Educators about Modern Cloth Nappies”, is funded by the State Government through the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Account, and administered by the Waste Authority.
