Who is eligible to access the service?
This service is available to St.LukesHealth Members in Northern Tasmania who do not have access to a private hospital with postnatal services.
Mums who deliver their baby at the LGH can access the postnatal service at the Mantra Charles Hotel. (Mums and bubs must be well enough to go home to use the service as this is a post‐discharge service).
The postnatal service is available on all hospital products with the exception of Packaged Budget 500 Level 2, Budget 500 Level 2 and Hospital Co-pay. A 12 month waiting period applies to new members and members transferring from another fund.

Home Based Postnatal Service
We know some mums would prefer to relax in the comfort of their own home. As an alternative to our hotel service, Northern Tasmanian members when discharged from the LGH can return home and still receive our support.
