Kilmore District Health (KDH) provides pregnancy and birth care to the women of Kilmore, Wallan, Broadford, Seymour and neighbouring areas, with about 300 births per year.

Having a baby can be one of the most exciting times in your life. Our staff at KDH provide professional, quality care and support for you and your family throughout your pregnancy and birth journey. A range of options for pregnancy care currently exist to suit your needs.

Telehealth Appointments

KDH is now conducting some ante-natal appointments via Telehealth. If your appointments are to be held this way, you will receive information prior to your appointment.

Public Antenatal Care

Antenatal clinics run weekly and appointments are available Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and offer complete pregnancy care and education.
 

Your care will be provided by midwives and the obstetrician working in the antenatal clinic, and your baby’s birth will be attended by midwives and the doctor on call.
 

KDH also runs a satellite clinic at Seymour. This clinic is run on Thursdays only, from the Ambulatory Care Centre at Seymour Hospital.

 

There is also a satellite clinic in Wallan at the Nexus Building. These operate weekly on a Friday from

COVID-19 Maternity visiting hours 

When you move to the postnatal ward with your baby, your birth partner can transfer with you and stay with you for the remainder of that day.

Please be aware, due to space limitations in some areas/rooms, your birth partner may be asked by ward staff to step out of your room or in the case of a shared patient room, may be asked to leave. This is to ensure physical distancing can be maintained and to keep other women and babies in our hospital as well as our staff, safe.  

When your birth partner comes for a subsequent visit, they can stay for up to 2 hours per day on the ward. Again, there may be times when your birth partner may be asked by ward staff to step out of your room or in some cases, they may be asked to leave.

Other than your birth partner, no other visitors are allowed on the postnatal ward.

When you are discharged from hospital, you will still receive support through our postnatal care in the home program. Some of these appointments may be done in person or over the phone.
