Obstetric Anaesthetic

Obstetric Analgesia & Anaesthesia

We provide an on-call service to provide obstetric analgesia and anaesthesia to patients at Calvary Hospital and the Hobart Private Hospital. Advanced epidural and spinal pain relief techniques and medications are used to meet the needs of the woman in labour. Anaesthesia, both regional and general, are provided for elective and emergency Caesarian Section as well as other Obstetric procedures.

Antenatal Education

Group members set up and are involved in providing antenatal education in anaesthesia and pain relief as part of the Calvary Hospital Antenatal Education Programme. We use a video explaining epidural pain relief as part of our education segment. These classes are popular and provide an excellent opportunity to address any concerns or information needs.
