The birth of your baby is one of the truly special moments in your life. And now is no different. Our experienced, caring and professional team are here to support, guide and nurture you, your loved ones and newborn through pregnancy and beyond.

About our Antenatal Clinic

Our Antenatal Clinic has moved to the Specialist Medical Assessment Clinic (SMAC) located at Unit 6, 65 Grand Boulevard.

Joondalup Health Campus offers a comprehensive range of services to deliver your baby. If you are delivering your baby as a public patient at Joondalup Health Campus, you will attend our midwife-led Antenatal Clinic throughout your pregnancy. 

Ask your GP to refer you to the JHC Antenatal Clinic. Generally, your first Antenatal Clinic appointment will be scheduled between 16-20 weeks gestation. Once your GP has sent your referral to us, we will be in touch to schedule your first appointment – which may be conducted online.

From 20 weeks gestation to 32 weeks gestation you will visit the Antenatal Clinic every four weeks. After 32 weeks gestation, your appointments will be fortnightly to monitor your health and well-being and your baby’s progress.

Labour and Birth

During labour and after birth, our doctors are kept well informed about you and your baby. A midwife will always be present at the birth of your baby and a doctor will be present as necessary. Our doctors visit the maternity ward daily and are on-hand to discuss any concerns or queries you may have.

Our midwives are skilled and up-to-date with the latest birthing techniques and neonatal care. They will assist you with your labour, birth, postnatal care and parenting education. At Joondalup Health Campus we can deliver your baby from 32 weeks gestation. Babies born prior to 32 weeks gestation must be delivered at King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH).

Rest assured that COVID positive and COVID suspected patients who are in labour are being cared for in a separate area of the hospital. 

Special Care Nursery

Our Special Care Nursery is staffed 24 hours a day by dedicated and skilled nurses and paediatricians, with access to neonatologists as required. Our unit is a Level 2b Special Care Nursery where 16 babies can be cared for at a time. Babies who require level 3 care will be transferred to Princess Margaret Hospital or King Edward Memorial Hospital by the Neonatal Emergency Transport Service (NETS).
