Choosing who you have caring for you throughout your pregnancy, labour, birth and beyond is an important decision.
The Maternity Care options available in Bundaberg and on the Fraser Coast are outlined below for your consideration.
Should you have any questions about these options, please speak to your GP or the midwives from our maternity units.
Standard hospital care
Your care is provided by midwives, doctors and obstetricians at Bundaberg or Hervey Bay hospitals, who are specially trained to look after you during your pregnancy, labour and after birth.
All your care will be provided at the hospital. Depending on your general health and/or pregnancy risk factors, your care will be provided by midwives and/or doctors and obstetricians.
Your GP will need to send a referral to the hospital antenatal clinic so an appointment can be made to commence your care. While we endeavour to have the same midwife or doctor to see you in the antenatal clinic, this is not always possible.
