Title Postnatal Maternity Outpatient Clinic celebrates a successful year Country/Territory Australia Date 09/12/16 Description The Postnatal Maternity Outpatient Clinic (PMOC) at Port Macquarie Base Hospital celebrated its first birthday.
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.
The clinic is a drop-in style service (with no appointment necessary) and runs once a week for four hours. Since it opened in September last year, the clinic has provided support to more than 100 women and 110 infants.
