Welcome to the Division of Maternity and Women's Health

The Illawarra and Shoalhaven Maternity and Women’s Health services want all new parents and their families to feel respected, supported and empowered during your care with us.

A range of pregnancy and after birth care options are offered at Wollongong, Shoalhaven and Milton Ulladulla Hospitals, including preparation for birth, parenting and breastfeeding groups. Midwives can also visit you at home after your birth if you leave hospital early from Helensburgh to Milton-Ulladulla regional areas.

Birthing services are offered at Wollongong and Shoalhaven (Nowra) Hospitals.

From pre-conception to taking your baby home, we provide high quality care to ensure the best outcomes for each family.

We have services to help you find your way.

See your GP (doctor) to confirm your pregnancy and they will be able to put you in touch with people to help you.

At the hospital, we have a variety of interpreters available in person or over the phone.

Some family members like to interpret for you, but if we say something you don't understand, it's best to have an interpreter to help. 

Please let reception staff know what language you speak at home.

Need an Interpreter? Professional interpreters are available if you need help to communicate with staff. Our staff can also ask for an interpreter. The service is free and confidential. We will book the interpreter for you.

You can also call the Translating and Interpreting Service on 131 450 if you need to speak to us before your appointment.
