Toowoomba maternity service offers generations of care

By SVPHT staff

At St Vincent's we understand that having a baby is one of life’s most precious moments and our experienced maternity team is on hand 24/7 to support and guide you every step of the way as you bring your baby into the world.

Our midwifery team has a wealth of experience and knowledge to ensure our mothers and their partners enjoy the highest standard care possible throughout their antenatal, birthing and post-natal journey.

The Dorothea Devine Maternity Unit is serviced by seven private Obstetricians, five private Paediatricians and 24-hour Intensive Care coverage. The unit is supported by a Special Care Nursery for newborns requiring special observation, treatment, or care.

The facilities in the St Vincent's Dorothea Devine Maternity Unit are modern and comfortable and include 22 single en-suited rooms and six double rooms (shared).

Within the unit we have four birth suites, including one that was refurbished in 2020 to include a private en-suite and a bath that women in labour can use for pain relief, two assessment rooms, and a three-bed recovery area for post-caesarean care.

The unit runs antenatal classes and provides an in-house lactation support service.
