Family Birthing Suite

Castlemaine Health’s Family Birthing Suite provides three modern birthing rooms with calming décor and experienced midwives and doctors to support families in having a natural, healthy birth.

Women giving birth have the security of knowing that the most modern equipment is at hand if required, however, the birth will remain a shared family event rather than a clinical procedure.

Two of the birthing suites have double beds. All rooms have a breastfeeding chair, remote control television and ensuite shower and toilet facilities. There is also a full length bath in a separate room.

Expectant parents are encouraged to book in early by making an appointment with our Maternity Enhancement Coordinator on 5471 1471. She will provide further information on antenatal classes and a home visit service after the birth. Telephone advice on breast feeding and other maternity issues is available from the midwives on duty at the hospital at any time.
