What is BadgerNet Maternity Notes?

BadgerNet’s Maternity Notes is an online portal and app that allows you to access your maternity records over the internet through your PC, tablet device or mobile phone.

The information that you view is generated in real-time from your hospital-based maternity system, using details entered by your midwife or other health professionals involved in your care.

What are the benefits?

BadgerNet’s Maternity Notes will be replacing our old green handheld notes.There are a number of benefits to using Maternity Notes, over paper notes, such as:

  • Information can be shared with you directly from the maternity system
  • Records can be easily updated at each maternity visit or appointment
  • Midwives do not have to double enter data onto paper handheld notes
  • Only those with the correct login details are able to access the notes.

You can add information regarding:

  • Yourself, such as your occupation and any allergies. This can be discussed with your midwife at your booking appointment
  • Your plans and preferences for birth
  • Feedback regarding your antenatal care, labour and birth experiences.
How secure is it?

• All information is held securely and cannot be accessed without the correct login details (similar to internet banking)
• Maternity Notes is powered by BadgerNet, the same secure platform used by healthcare professionals involved in your maternity care.
