Our next project for Sale Hospital’s Maternity Unit

The Women’s and Children’s Unit at Sale Hospital provides antenatal, intrapartum and postnatal care for women and their families from across the Wellington shire and surrounds. Often they welcome families from East Gippsland and further when needed. The Unit aims to provide high quality family and woman centred care, meeting the needs of a diverse range of families. There are many reasons why women may present through their pregnancy to hospital for assessment on the background of concerns. Reduced fetal movements, pain or bleeding are amongst some of these reason’s all of which can raise concern around fetal wellbeing and anxiety for women and family. At these times ultrasound assessment is a valuable tool capable of providing important diagnostic information for clinicians regarding the health of fetus or embryo. Having access to an ultrasound on the unit that can be used bedside allows for immediate assessment 24 hours day. The information obtained can provide accurate diagnosis that can guide timely clinical decision making and planning of care to support optimal outcome for women and babies from whom we care. Please donate HERE. The funds will help buy an ultrasound machine for Sale Hospital’s Maternity Unit.
