Bendigo Health's maternity unit is located on Level 3 of our Stanistreet Building on the main hospital campus.
The Maternity Unit is the birthplace for more than 1300 babies every year. The unit has four birthing suites and 16 antenatal/postnatal beds.
Family birthing suits are available to women whose pregnancy has been assessed by an obstetrician as low risk. Women and their partners can stay together after the birth in the suite for 24 hours. Midwives and the medical team collaborate during your stay to ensure you are given the best possible care in our service.
This is supported by an on-call Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, Paediatric and Anaesthetic Service. After the birth of your baby you can expect to stay in hospital for 48 hours following a vaginal birth, or 72 hours following a caesarean birth. The actual length of stay will depend on the wellbeing of you and your baby.
