Maternity Australia is a collaborative maternity service aimed at providing you with accessible, personalised care close to home. Endorsed midwives offer bulk billed appointments within community based clinics where you will have direct access to a GP Obstetrician within the service. Each clinic is located within an existing medical practice.
Early booking appointments are encouraged so that you can be holistically assessed by a midwife. This enables you to have the opportunity to consider your maternity care options, access the most appropriate model of care in a timely manner and learn about allied health services available to support you throughout the maternity continuum. The recommended schedule of antenatal care is followed and the midwives work closely with your own GP and your chosen birthing hospital to ensure that you experience a seamless transition between services.
Postnatal care provides you with the opportunity to share your birthing experience and receive personalised support as you gain confidence in feeding and caring for your new baby.
