Know My Midwife via Telehealth

May 11, 2020

Cairns Private Hospital has adjusted the way it offers its Know My Midwife program to its maternity customers in direct response to the coronavirus pandemic.

On-site antenatal and postnatal consultations with the midwife are now being delivered via telehealth.

This virtual option gives women the opportunity to speak to their midwife from the safety and comfort of their own home.

National Service Line Director for Maternity, Deanna Ward, said: “We identified that we could no longer have lengthy consultations with our expectant mums the way we traditionally would.”

“Providing women with the opportunity to utilise telehealth means they haven’t missed out on this vital service.”
