Maternity Care Clinics

The Maternity Care Clinics are multidisciplinary clinics providing care to pregnant women with both low and high risk pregnancies.

There are five clinics: four (Blue, Green, Red and Yellow) are based at the Parkville campus and one is based at Sandringham Hospital. The Parkville teams, which provide primary and tertiary care, are comprised of obstetricians (including maternal fetal medicine), midwives, GPs, psychiatrists, social workers, dieticians, physiotherapists and haematologists. The Sandringham team, which provides primary care, is comprised of obstetricians, GPs and midwives.
