Maternity Unit

The Maternity Unit is staffed by a skilled team of professionals who work together to help achieve as healthy and happy a pregnancy as is possible for each woman who attends the unit.

Our friendly team is made up of caring professionals including Midwifery staff, Obstetric specialists and medical officers as well as Paediatric specialists and medical officers.

Other health providers that may care for you at Canterbury Hospital include health care interpreters, social workers, mental health team, pathology, physiotherapy or anaesthetic staff.

Canterbury Hospital is also a teaching hospital with relationships with a number of universities.  You may have supervised midwifery and medical students working as part of your care team.

Canterbury Hospital staff are proud that the hospital was accredited as a Baby Friendly Hospital in 2014.

The Maternity Unit can also help you to prepare for the labour and birth, help build parenting skills and refer you to local child and family health services for ongoing contact after leaving the hospital.
