"Wonderful midwife care model at Box Hill Hospital."

About: Box Hill Hospital / Maternity Service

(as the patient),

From the moment we joined the group midwife care model we have been so happy with the support from Vanessa our amazing midwife. We also really enjoyed the new parent class and breastfeeding class and would recommend the group care model to all people wanting to have a baby. I felt safe, well informed and always supported through the entire process. I'm going to miss my visits with Vanessa and our regular chats she has made such a huge impact on our lives and can't thank her and the team at Box Hill enough. We had a really positive birth experience and so grateful for all the hours Vanessa put in to ensure a smooth transition into the world for our beautiful baby. We miss you Vanessa and send lots of love and thanks for everything you have done for us.

Dear MrsH

Many thanks for taking the time to provide your wonderful feedback regarding the care and support Vanessa and the Midwifery Group Practice team at Box Hill Hospital provided you.

I am so proud of the Eastern Health midwives who work in this program and I will ensure Vanessa receives your lovely comments. It is through feedback such as yours that we can celebrate the great work our staff do each and every day.

I hope you are settling in well at home with your new babe, that all is progressing to plan and wish you all the best of health and happiness.

Thanks again and kind regards
