My two youngest babies were born there. I was lucky to have the same midwife attend both births and my youngest baby and I luckily delivered in the private room with a lovely private ensuite and large family bed. I felt spoilt. My midwife was also a lactation consultant and was amazing.
The midwife team and obs were also fantastic. I had PE threatening both my pregnancies and full blown PE in my first pregnacy and got amazing care in my later two. Not great care in my first though ( at a large western melb hospital)
So yes I adore this hospital. I rarely hear bad experiences from anyone giving birth there.
I actually really missed my prenatal visits due to them being like old friends.
Edited to add I self referred myself through Melton health. You simply call them and they will make an appointment with the midwife team and visit them in melton health which is on Barry's rd in Melton.
Everything is free except the 12 week nuchal fold test. Dating scans and morph scan are free though.
