Southern DHB Primary Birthing Unit - Balclutha
The Clutha Health First Maternity Centre is a primary birthing facility that has a reputation for providing one-on-one care to new parents in a friendly, quiet and ‘homely' environment, staffed by a small team of local qualified nurses and midwives.
We provide a holistic birthing environment with all the necessary equipment and expertise required to deliver safe care to women experiencing a low risk pregnancy and anticipating a normal birth, and offer women and their families a peaceful, safe and friendly atmosphere in which to begin your parenting journey.
The centre provides a low staff/women ratio to ensure that women can have quality time spent with them when needed. We also cater for fathers/support persons who wish to stay with the mother and baby.
The Clutha Health First Maternity Centre comprises:
- two private bedrooms with a shared ensuite
- one private bedroom with own ensuite
- birthing room with pool and ensuite
- a lounge for you to relax in and share with your family/visitors with facilities for refreshments.
If you have any questions or would like to know more about BFHI, please ask your midwife or a maternity staff member.
The Maternity Centre strives to provide the highest possible standard of care to women and their families in South Otago.
