Community Midwife program
Millicent Hospital and Health Service provides a community midwife program to support mothers and babies discharged home post-delivery until 6 weeks of age. Referrals can be sent to the hospital from the delivering service or by self-referral.
Mothers and babies can be seen either in their home environment or for more intensive support and education in the hospital.
Regular post natal checks can be performed by the midwives, reducing the need for mothers to travel to Mount Gambier or Naracoorte.
Contact the hospital for further information.
Child and Family Health Services are also co-located onsite to provide access to support services for mothers and babies.
