As has always been the case, the safe care of you and your baby remains our highest priority.
Joondalup Health Campus continues to respond to the global pandemic in the best interests of patients, staff and members of the public.
In the event of any COVID-19 positive patient being admitted, they will be cared for in our COVID isolation ward.
This will keep them separated from all other patients and visitors and ensure the safety of all.
We have designated our private, negative pressure birth suites for exclusive use by any COVID-19 positive patients or patients displaying COVID-19 symptoms.
All non-COVID patients will be delivered in our well-equipped public birth suites.
Post birth, private patients will be transferred to our private maternity ward, and public patients will be transferred to our public maternity ward.
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 and is located on the corner of Grand Boulevard and Regent’s Park Road.
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.
Between 20 and 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.
Our Neonatal Unit 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 Neonatal Unit where 16 babies can be cared for at a time. Babies who require level 3 care will be transferred to Perth Children’s Hospital or King Edward Memorial Hospital by the Neonatal Emergency Transport Service (NETS).
