Newcastle Private Hospital is a hospital in the Hunter offering Birth care

Important Note: There is a general trend that is the womens’ right to be informed about. That is that Private Hospitals currently have around double the rate of ceasarean births compared to the public system in Australia. This will vary from carer to carer and we recommend that if you choose to pursue private care (or public care) that you start by asking your possible medical provider to show you their birth statistics.

Some families believe that using private health care will be beneficial for their birth experience. This is not necessarily the case due to the high intervention rate in a private health billing system.

At the Newcastle Private Hospital the mothers prenatal care and birth are supported by an obstetrician.

Midwives also attend births but are restricted by hospital policies and the environment in which they work, in the support they can provide (this applies to all hospital settings, though policies vary from hospital to hospital and it is worth asking questions about).

We have provided some information about what Newcastle Private hospital provides for your interest, please contact the hospital directly for further questions or to book, we are not affiliated with any hospitals.
