Personalised care with a midwife you know and trust
Having access to the care and support you need before, during and after childbirth sets the tone for your journey into motherhood.
The range of care options and services Coast Life Midwifery offers means we can provide you with a personalised pregnancy and birthing experience from the early stages of pregnancy through to six weeks after the birth of your baby.
Your initial visit will be bulk billed through Medicare so we can discuss your goals and the care options and choices available to you throughout your pregnancy.
We focus on holistic care and women-centred pregnancy, labour and postnatal care including:
- In home or in clinic midwifery care during pregnancy
- Referrals for ultrasounds and blood tests
- Prescribing of medications as required
- Early labour care at home
- Care during labour and birth at home or in hospital
- Mums & Bubs social group.
Continuity of care
Continuity of care is at the heart of everything we do. Whether you choose a traditional continuity of care model or either the group practice or shared care experiences, you will be able to form a strong, trusting relationship with your midwife. Even after your baby is born, you can continue to receive postnatal care and support from the same midwife, or small group of midwives who were with you during pregnancy and birth.
If you choose Continuity of Care, you will have your own personal dedicated midwife who will be your first point of contact for the duration of your care. This care is considered the ‘gold standard’ of care and it is well supported by research to improve outcomes and satisfaction for mothers and babies.
You will have access to your own midwife or her partner midwife 24 hours for professional and personal care, advice and support. Your midwife will coordinate your whole continuity experience. Your care will be woman centred and individualised, by your midwife and the midwives at Coast Life Midwifery.
