Women’s Care Unit

The Women’s Care Unit has a 12-bed maternity unit and Special Care Nursery (SCN), staffed by highly experienced Midwives. The SCN provides specialist care to unwell term and preterm neonates born after 32 weeks’ gestation.

The Unit offers pregnancy care appointments Monday to Friday with a Midwife, in partnership with your GP and Obstetricians. Mothers and babies who require referral and/or consultation to a higher level of care facility will be transferred to Lismore Base Hospital, or to other facilities outside the Northern NSW Local Health District.

The service also includes regular birth and parenting groups, a Maternity in the Home program following discharge, and referrals to Child and Family health.
