Hospital: Hospital - Benalla Health Midwifery Ward
Located adjacent to the Surgical Ward, the Midwifery Ward boasts 3 fully contained birthing suites where mothers are admitted and usually remain for the duration of their stay. Antenatal classes and a booking-in program are offered to expectant women and their partners to assist in the preparation for delivery. General practitioner obstetricians work closely with our midwives, supported by a specialist obstetrician. Visiting hours are relaxed, however visitors are requested to observe the 1.00 - 3.00pm rest period.
