Shared Maternity Care & Breastfeeding Support
Shared Maternity Care is an arrangement between a hospital (or other birth setting) and Yarragon Medical Centre where your pregnancy care is divided between us and your hospital. You will have some of your antenatal appointments with us and others with the hospital, depending on the reason for the visit. Most tests and scans, for example, would take place at the hospital.
Yarragon Medical Centre provides shared antenatal care with West Gippsland Hospital and breastfeeding support. Dr Alison Stacey has her Diploma of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and has recently qualified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). If you would like an appointment for Breastfeeding Support, please advise our friendly reception staff so we can book your baby and yourself in for a longer consultation. Alison is available for appointments on Mondays and Wednesdays.
