What we do

Alpine Health midwives provide a range of antenatal (before birth) and postnatal (after birth) services to help you with your parenting journey. 

Alpine Health is well prepared for fast unplanned births at each of our three Urgent Care sites in Bright, Myrtleford and Mt Beauty but we do not provide planned birthing services.

Birthing and Early Parenting Classes 

There are plenty of reasons to go to Birthing and Early parenting classes before your baby arrives. Apart from informing and equipping you with the knowledge and skills for the best start in your parenting journey, these local classes allow you to connect with other local people in a similar situation and provide up to date information relevant to wherever birthing is planned to occur. Generally classes are most beneficial when attended between 20 and 36 weeks of pregnancy.
