Breastfeeding is encouraged. All of the Midwives are very experienced in providing breastfeeding advice and support. Lactation consultants are also available.

As part of our Medicare endorsement, all Midwives have additional qualifications to offer Medicare rebates. We can also, order blood tests, ultrasounds and prescribe Midwifery related medications as required.
