The Midwife Care Program at the Albury Wodonga Health - Wodonga Campus is for women with uncomplicated pregnancies.
An initial assessment is made to determine your suitability for becoming a Midwife Care client.
The focus of the Midwife Care Program is on preparation, involvement and active birth. The program provides an opportunity for women and their families to participate fully in the pregnancy and labour.
Midwives are responsible for your care throughout the pregnancy, labour and postnatal period.
Should complications develop, you will be referred back to your GP.
When you book into the Midwife Care Program you will be referred to a GP who delivers at Albury Wodonga Health - Wodonga Campus.
If at any time complications develop then you will be referred back to the care of your GP.
A GP will be available if required during your stay in hospital.
After you have left hospital your family GP can provide the postnatal care for you and your baby.
During your pregnancy, care is provided by the Midwives.
