Maternity services at Gunnedah Hospital

Congratulations on your pregnancy and welcome to the Gunnedah Hospital Birthing Service.

The Gunnedah Hospital provides maternity care to women who live in Gunnedah area, and other women and babies transferred for care from across the Hunter New England Local Health District and other parts of NSW.

Our team care for healthy women and their babies greater than 37 weeks gestation, as well as those with a wide range of more complicated needs. Our aim is to provide what we call ‘women-centred care.’ This means that we want to work with you to tailor your care to meet your individual needs.

The Gunnedah Hospital has been caring for women and babies since it opened its doors in 1964. Around 160 babies are born at Gunnedah Hospital each year.

Our maternity care team are committed to ensuring that you have a safe and positive birth experience and that you have the support you need to begin caring for your newborn baby.

Yours Sincerely,

Therese Mills
