Thanks to a grant from the Waste Authority, Green Skills has been training local Parent Educators how to use modern cloth nappies, and provided nearly all Perth’s maternity hospitals with an Antenatal Cloth Nappy Demo kit.
The kits contain a range of cloth nappies plus info on how to wash them (same as washing clothes) and some environmental mythbusting (let there be no confusion: reusable trumps disposable). If you’re having a baby in Perth, you can check out cloth (and disposable) nappies at these hospitals:
Armadale Health Service
Joondalup Health Campus
King Edward Memorial Hospital for Women
The Family Birth Centre (King Edward Memorial Hospital)
St John of God Hospital, Midland
St John of God Hospital, Murdoch
St John of God Hospital, Mt Lawley
St John of God Hospital, Subiaco
Glengarry Private Hospital
Osborne Park Hospital
