Description

The Postnatal Maternity Outpatient Clinic (PMOC) at Port Macquarie Base Hospital celebrated its first birthday last month.

The PMOC offers postnatal maternal and infant health assessments, interdisciplinary health care referrals, education, care and support for women from the time they are discharged from hospital through to six weeks post birth.

The clinic was established with funding from the Mid North Coast Local Health District (MNCLHD) Research and Quality Improvement Grant scheme, to provide more effective postnatal care services and to better meet the needs of local women. It is a collaborative initiative between the MNCLHD and the University of Newcastle and is staffed by a registered midwife and midwifery students.
