Northern Tasmania Private Post-Natal Service

St.LukesHealth members in Northern Tasmania do not have access to a private hospital to deliver their baby or to aid in their post-natal recovery.

We are therefore proud to offer a personalised private post-natal stay that allows mothers and families the opportunity to rest and get to know their baby while being supported by midwives and lactation consultants.

This service is not available to those who live interstate or in Southern or North-West Tasmania, unless you give birth at the Launceston General Hospital.

For more information about this service, contact St.LukesHealth on 1300 651 988.
