Tertiary Pregnancy Care in Perth

Tertiary care in WA is provided at King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH) in Subiaco, Perth.

Women assessed as having a ‘high-risk’ of pregnancy complications and who require on-going specialised obstetric care will be referred by their GP or obstetrician for Tertiary Care.

These women may have a history of complications with a previous pregnancy or birth, have an existing medical condition or may be experiencing a complex pregnancy.

Women who receive care initially through other WA maternity services, including private hospitals, who experience unexpected and complex complications during pregnancy or in labour may be transferred to KEMH for specialist care. Babies who require specialist care after being born may be transferred to the Special Care Nurseries at either KEMH or Princess Margaret Hospital, also located in Subiaco, Perth.
