Maternity services at Biloela Hospital
The mission of our unit is to provide the highest standard of care to mothers and babies, before, during and after the birth, promoting the health and well-being of the family unit.
When to come to hospital
Please present yourself to the maternity unit immediately if:
- Your waters have broken
- You have bleeding from the vagina
- You are having regular pains or contractions 5-10 minutes apart
- You have severe abdominal pain
- There are any changes in your baby’s movements. For example, if the movements are less frequent, more than usual or if you have any other concerns around your baby’s movements.
Please phone the maternity unit before coming in, if you have time.
Photographs and video
You are encouraged to bring a camera to capture special memories. If you wish to photograph/video the birth please speak with the midwife or doctor caring for you.
While we aim to make this a positive experience for you, please understand your midwife or doctor may not wish to be included in images of your birth.
