Maternity Services

Maternity services are available through Castlemaine Health.

Castlemaine Health Maternity Services offers local pregnancy, labour and birth and early parenting care for healthy women with normal pregnancies. They also work with Bendigo Health, the regional health service, to support local women and babies who need more specialist care.

Castlemaine Health’s team of four midwives offer Midwifery Group Practice or caseload midwifery care. One midwife will care for you throughout your pregnancy, labour and birth and early parenting. The Midwifery Group Practice midwives will be on-call 24 hours a day for your labour and birth, and to help you with urgent concerns.

Midwives work closely with a team of local GP obstetricians who provide on-call care 24/7 if required, and the regional health service, Bendigo Health.

Shared care, where you have some of your pregnancy care visits with your midwife and some with your GP, is also available. Your GP will need to be a Castlemaine Health accredited GP.

Facility Upgrades

We are looking forward to our new garden and outdoor room off the Jessie Bowe wing which is progressing well.

New After Hours access room is now available two doors to the left of the main entrance. If you attend the hospital please speak into the phone to the nurse and ensure they are aware you are waiting at the front door. New signage is coming!
