Where midwives know how you feel

Just before Mother’s Day, our Northern Hospital maternity staff were featured in the Herald Sun!

In a strange case of “life imitating work”, 13 of our staff in our maternity unit are awaiting their own special deliveries.

Expectant mother, Midwifery Unit Manager, Nicole Carlon, said about half of the women were planning on having their babies at Northern Hospital.

She also said that many patients here at the hospital felt more at ease and comfortable knowing their midwife was expecting as well, as they can relate and know what it’s like.

Once staff start taking their maternity leave in the coming months, covering staff will be available from a wait list ready to go.

We wish the expectant mothers all the best with their deliveries!
