Would you like to birth in a hospital with continuity-of-care from your own midwife? The My Midwives Melbourne team has private visiting rights at Northern Health!
That means our midwives can now offer one-to-one care to all women throughout their pregnancy, labour & birth and for six weeks after your baby is born. Northern Health has Collaborative Arrangements with My Midwives - These formal arrangements mean you can have your antenatal care with your chosen midwife in the community and receive Medicare rebates*.
At all times during your pregnancy and birth, you will have access to obstetricians and other specialists as required.
You will have the option to birth at Northern Health with your midwife by your side, even if you require medical consultation. You may be able to claim for services from your private health insurance*, however, private health insurance is not essential to participate in this model of care.
We are now taking bookings for women at any stage of pregnancy wishing to birth at Northern Health with their own midwife. Please contact our clinic to organise a bulk-billed information visit to find out more.
*Medicare rebates and bulk billing are available for Medicare-eligible patients only. For details on private health insurance rebates, please speak to your insurer directly
