Women's Ward

Bendigo Health's Women's Ward is located on Level 3 East on the main hospital campus.

The Women's Ward (previously known as Maternity Unit) is where women and their babies are cared for after birth. Parents will be able to bath their babies in their own room and enjoy the fresh air in the ward's courtyard.

Family birthing suits are available to women whose pregnancy has been assessed by an obstetrician as low risk. Women and their partners can stay together after the birth in the suite for 24 hours. Midwives and the medical team collaborate during your stay to ensure you are given the best possible care in our service.

This is supported by an on-call Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, Paediatric and Anaesthetic Service. After the birth of your baby you can expect to stay in hospital for 48 hours following a vaginal birth, or 72 hours following a caesarean birth. The actual length of stay will depend on the wellbeing of you and your baby.
