"Amazing birthing experience with MGP"

About: Box Hill Hospital / Maternity Service

(as the patient),

I delivered my baby last year at Box Hill hospital and was cared for by the Midwifery group practice, and couldn’t recommend it highly enough. The whole experience from booking in to postnatal visits was seamless.

My antenatal appointments were never rushed and gave me the right information to feel informed and empowered for my birth. My midwife Jess was supportive of my choices and advocated for me when I needed it.

A big thank you to Jess and Tara who made my birthing and pregnancy experience so positive. I really hope the MGP program can be made more accessible to more women in the future as I believe it really is the gold standard of care.
