Overview

Our professional team is committed to providing a supportive and caring environment for you and your family to enjoy.

With purpose built facilities, state of the art equipment and highly trained staff, our commitment to world’s best practice in maternity care is second to none.

Epworth midwives have had the privilege of being involved in over 3,000 Victorian births in the past year.

Experts by your side

The experienced midwives at Epworth pride themselves in working in partnership with you, your obstetrician and support team to ensure the health, safety and well-being of you and your baby.

Birth suites

Our modern birth suites provide the latest in technology, blended discreetly into the décor of the room to create a harmonious and safe environment.

For that extra measure of safety, our birthing suites are located in close proximity of fully-equipped operating theatres. We also have an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Special Care Nursery, if required.

Special Care Nursery

Newborns needing additional medical support, including premature babies born from 32 weeks gestation, are cared for in our Special Care Nursery. Our specialist team is trained to provide the highest level of clinical and emotional support during your baby’s stay.

Private room guarantee

At Epworth, we know how important those early days with your newborn are. Our maternity accommodation has been designed to give you a superior experience and we are delighted to guarantee a private room, complete with ensuite, television, telephone and free wi-fi during your stay.

Partners are encouraged to stay with their spouse to provide support, bond with their baby and learn all about their new role. All of our maternity suites can cater for partners with double bed or sofa bed options available.

Postnatal care

Our dedicated team is here to care for you and your baby throughout your hospital stay. Our midwives are here to support you in your recovery and to help with early parenting skills including feeding, settling, swaddling, nappy changing and bathing.

Midwives carry portable phones so that parents can reach them for assistance or advice any time of the day or night. Maternity rooms are also equipped with a call bell and the midwives station is located within close proximity to your room.

Our Lactation Consultants are available to help with breastfeeding questions, issues and information.

During your stay, a women’s health physiotherapist will visit your room to provide tips and guidance for post birth recovery.

Rooming in

During your time in hospital, your baby will stay with you in the comfort of your room (unless they need to be admitted to the Special Care Nursery). Rooming in promotes bonding with your baby and helps you get to know their cues and needs.

A La Carte dining

Our menu is designed to reflect the seasons, with an emphasis on healthy and nutritional dishes and we pride ourselves on sourcing Australian products. We cater for special dietary requirements including vegetarian, intolerances, allergies and religious restrictions.

Comprehensive education

Epworth maternity offers a comprehensive suite of education classes to assist you and your family in preparing for the birth of your new baby and early parenting.

Classes cover topics including your pregnancy, labour and birth, breastfeeding, early parenting, baby settling, multiple births, partner support and grandparents refresher.
