Welcome to the West Gippsland Hospital Maternity Unit.
We are here to guide and support you throughout your pregnancy, birth of your baby, breastfeeding and early days of parenthood.
We are one of 23 Victorian Health Services who offer the Baby Friendly Health Initiative.
The Baby Friendly Health Initiative (BFHI) is an international project that aims to give every baby the best start in life by creating a health care environment where breastfeeding is the norm and practices known to promote the health and well-being of all babies and their mothers are followed.
In accordance with requirements outlined in the Safe Patient Care (Nurse to Patient and Midwife to Patient Ratios) Amendment Act 2019, West Gippsland Healthcare Group have determined that the number of occupied birthing suites in the hospital is 4 (four). One (1) Ante-natal assessment room is also co-located in the area.
