South Canterbury maternity facilities

This page lists the maternity facilities available in the South Canterbury area.

Secondary maternity facilities are designed for women and babies who experience complications and may require care from an obstetrician, anaesthetist, paediatrician as well as a midwife. Well women may use these facilities in the absence of other maternity facilities in their area.

There are no tertiary maternity facilities in South Canterbury. If you have more complex maternity needs which require specialist, multidisciplinary care, you’ll generally be referred to a maternity facility in Canterbury DHB instead.

For information on the different kinds of maternity facility, see Where to give birth.
