Women and Children’s Outpatient Clinic

The Women and Children’s Outpatient Department cares for women during their pregnancy journey. 

We recommend that you contact the hospital at 8-10 weeks of pregnancy to arrange for your first appointment for your antenatal care. At this visit we will complete a comprehensive assessment of your medical and obstetric history and discuss care options for your pregnancy.

We offer several options for antenatal care in pregnancy. These include GP shared care, Caseload Midwifery, Midwifery Group Practice, Obstetric Led Care and Midwifery Led Care with an option for outreach community midwife clinics. We offer some midwife clinics out of hours.

Other services available include counselling with a psychologist, mental health and drug & alcohol services for pregnant women. The Nepean Blue Mountains Obesity Service, which includes the OPAL Clinic for pregnant women, is also available. Woman attending the OPAL Clinic have access to a midwife, obstetrician, dietitian, physiotherapy and psychologists.
