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