Midwifery Support Program (MSP)
The Midwifery Support Program (MSP) is attached to 1 South Maternity. MSP continues care for mothers and their babies at home following a hospital stay of 2 nights or up to 3 nights following a Caesarean Section. This service is available to women within the St George Local Area.
On occasions you may be invited to attend the maternity ward for your visit instead of at home. If you live outside the local area, you can be referred to your local hospital’s programme depending on availability.
Here at St George, we encourage women who are eligible, to go home on MSP. MSP allows the woman to be comfortable in her own home environment while still receiving the midwifery care that her and her baby needs.
Whilst you are on the programme we offer a combination of home visits, phone calls and no contact days. Your midwife will normally visit between the hours of 9am and 4pm (no appointment times are given). You will be on the programme until your baby is 5-7 days of age depending on the mother and baby’s individual needs.
