Post Natal Domiciliary Care Service
How to Access the Service
The Post Natal Domiciliary Care Service is offered to all women who live within a set boundary from the WCH, when they leave the hospital after their baby is born.
A home visiting service is also provided by experienced midwives from the Special Care Baby Unit (Neonatal Early Discharge Program).
A request form will be completed on discharge by the postnatal midwife. A domicillary midwife will ring 1-2 days after discharge and organise a mutually convenient time to visit.
Most women require up to two visits and they are then encouraged to have follow up care with Child & Youth Health and/or their GP.
The service is offered seven days a week between 9.00am and 4.00pm except Christmas Day.
