Kerang District Health Midwifery services

 

Kerang District Health has not been able to replace their GP obstetrician services since their last doctor left in 2015, despite advertising and offering incentives for doctors who may wish to move to the town.

 

For women around Kerang who are planning or expecting a child there are birthing services offered at:

 

  • Swan Hill Hospital -  for low risk pregnancies
  • Bendigo Health
  • St John of God Bendigo
  • Echuca Hospital
  • Cohuna hospital.

 

For women experiencing a low risk pregnancy there may be the opportunity to have shared Antenatal Care with a midwife in Kerang - to save travelling to every appointment at your birthing service that you have chosen.  This would need to be in cooperation with your antenatal care Doctor or Obstetrician.  If this is an option for you please contact the Kerang Medical Clinic on 5452 1288 to make an appointment with the antenatal midwife.

 

Post Birthing

For women after they have had their baby, and wish to have a couple of days in hospital before they go home, there may the opportunity to transfer from your birthing hospital to Kerang District Health, if this arrangement is suitable for your birthing hospital, and if there is a doctor at Kerang District Health willing to accept you and your babies care.  Your birthing hospital can see if this option is available after your baby is born.

 

Once you are home Domiciliary care - as per website currently.
