SLHD offers maternity services at Canterbury, Concord and RPA hospitals. Over 5500 women birth to SLHD each year. In SLHD, we are committed to providing woman/family-centred care, ensuring optimal health outcomes and positive birth experiences for families who choose to birth in our district.

The maternity unit at Canterbury Hospital is

 a diverse and dynamic unit providing care to women with low - moderate-risk pregnancies. Canterbury maternity care encompasses an Antenatal Clinic, Birthing Unit, Antenatal/ Postnatal Ward, Special Care Nursery, Midwifery @ Home service, as well as thriving continuity of midwifery care models (incorporating Midwifery Group Practice (MGP) and the Canterbury Antenatal and Postnatal Service (CAPS)).

RPA Women and Babies 

is a level 6 tertiary referral hospital for all women, including those with high-risk pregnancies. RPA provides care to women within SLHD as well as mothers and babies across NSW who require complex obstetric care. RPA Women and Babies encompasses the Antenatal Clinic, Early Pregnancy Assessment Service (EPAS), Delivery Ward, Birth Centre, Antenatal and Postnatal Wards, Midwifery @ Home service, and Maternal-Fetal Medicine Unit. Neonatal Intensive Care Unit has two MGPs, a Midwifery Antenatal and Postnatal Service (MAPS), and a midwifery team model provided through the RPA Birth Centre.

Concord Repatriation General Hospital

(CRGH) has an MGP clinic, providing more local options of care for women in the Concord catchment. Women within this clinic give birth at either RPA or Canterbury Hospital. SLHD has an ongoing focus on the expansion of continuity of care for pregnant women. We acknowledge the high-quality evidence that women who receive care by known midwives are more likely to have a positive experience and improved clinical outcomes. In addition to this, there is increased job satisfaction for the midwives working in continuity models of care, as they are supported to work to their  full scope of practice.

SLHD is also committed to the ongoing education, skills, and professional development of midwives through a broad range of training offered through the district's Centre for Education and Workforce Development.
