LISA Feldtmann said she has felt supported as a young mother in Kyabram, raising her daughter Isla, 11 weeks, with husband Sam.
“I grew up here and always had great employment and schooling opportunities,’’ she said.
‘‘And I want to give my daughter the same opportunities.
“The Kyabram Hospital is also a huge benefit of living here.
‘‘It’s connected with the Shepparton hospital so I was able to have my antenatal appointments in Ky.
‘‘And the care I received from the midwives after my daughter was born at the Kyabram hospital was fantastic.
‘‘It’s a shame you can’t have babies at the Ky hospital anymore because it has great staff and great facilities.’’
