Maternity services

Maternity services at Castlemaine Health are currently suspended while the recommendations of a review are implemented.

Local women can access maternity services at Bendigo Health until services at Castlemaine Health resume. Your GP Obstetrician will be able to explain the options available.

The experienced midwives at Castlemaine Health continue to deliver antenatal and other support services. These include lactation services and Domiciliary Maternity Home Care.

Domiciliary Maternity Home Care supports new and expanding families within the first week of birth and is available to all women who have birthed within the public health system and reside within the Mount Alexander Shire. Referrals can be made by other hospitals to access this service.

If you would like to speak with our midwifery team about any of these services please call 54713471.
