Models of Care

he Pregnancy Care Service is available at both Coffs Harbour Health Campus and Macksville Health Campus. Pregnancy Care Service provides Team Midwifery Care, where a small team of midwives support you throughout your pregnancy, labour and postnatally. The team midwives will call upon the hospital obstetricians if complications arise.
UPDATE: Midwifery Group Practice is set to start at the Coffs Harbour Health Campus by 2021.  MGP is a welcome and overdue model of care for local women, who will be able to access continuity of care with one midwife throughout their pregnancy and birthing journey.
