Introducing Midwifery Services by Jess-Before and After Baby at Granada Medical.

Embarking on the incredible journey of pregnancy and motherhood is a unique and transformative experience for every woman. At Before and After Baby, we are excited to introduce our new Midwifery services, offering antenatal and postnatal continuity of care by the compassionate and skilled Endorsed Midwife, Jess at Granada Medical Centre.

What is an Endorsed Midwife?

An Endorsed Midwife, like Jess, is a Registered Midwife who has undergone additional training and accreditation to provide continuity of care throughout your pregnancy journey. This means you can experience the comfort of having the same knowledgeable and caring professional by your side from pregnancy to postpartum.

Benefits of Continuity Midwifery Care:

Personalized and Individualized Care: With Jess as your dedicated midwife, you’ll receive personalized care that caters to your unique needs and preferences. This individualized approach ensures you feel supported and empowered throughout your entire pregnancy and beyond.

Evidence-Based Care: Jess is committed to delivering evidence-based care, staying updated on the latest research and best practices. This ensures that you receive the highest quality of care based on the most current medical knowledge.

Why Choose Midwifery Care?

Midwifery care offers a range of advantages that contribute to a positive and empowering birthing experience:

Education and Support: Beyond medical care, Jess is passionate about providing comprehensive education and emotional support. Whether it’s helping you understand the changes happening in your body or guiding you through the various stages of childbirth, Jess is there for you.

Holistic Approach: Jess, as an Endorsed Midwife, adopts a holistic approach to care, considering not only the physical but also the emotional and mental aspects of your well-being. This comprehensive care ensures a more well-rounded and fulfilling experience.

Woman-Centred Care: Your needs and preferences take centre stage with midwifery care. Jess prioritizes creating a pregnancy experience that aligns with your values and desires, fostering a sense of control and agency throughout the process.

Our Fees are Changing 1/1/2023

To continue to provide the best care for our patients, we have had to make the tough decision to move to mixed billing from January 2023.

We will continue to bulk bill appointments for children under the age of 16, DVA card holders and those with a current Centrelink concession card.

For all other patients there will be an out of pocket cost of around $30 (see signage in the waiting room for more information)

Fees will also apply for all procedures such as iron infusion, IUD / Mirena insertion and removal, Implanon insertion and removal, ear syringing, wound care and dressings, biopsy or excisions and so on.

We thank you for your understanding.
