Alpine Health provides a maternity care for all women and birthing services for low risk women.
At Alpine Health we view uncomplicated pregnancy and childbirth as a normal healthy life event.
We encourage women and their families to be actively involved in their pregnancy, birth and post natal care.
We respect every birth as a unique event, and women should receive care appropriate to the social, personal and cultural needs throughout pregnancy, labour, birth and in the days following discharge home".
Safe Birth, Close to Home
It is recommended that women, their families and the community know and understand what care is offered at the local health service.
Maternity care at Alpine Health is ‘shared' between your GP and team midwives working together to ensure safe quality care for women and their babies.
Obstetric GP's supporting maternity services at Alpine Health, have additional specialist training in pregnancy, birth and newborn care.
At Alpine Health, we provide birthing services for women with term pregnancies (between 37 - 42 weeks) and who have no other complications or concerns about mother or baby. Those women who develop complications or go into labour less than 37 completed pregnancy weeks, will be referred to a specialist located at a larger regional hospital for birth of the baby.
Alpine Health also provides postbirth care to women who give birth at other hospitals.
Birthing rooms provide birth and newborn equipment to ensure safe and quality care.
