The Maternity Outpatient Service (MOS) is a Monday to Friday service that is located on level 4, Timor street block and is open from 9:00am-5:30pm. The service specialises in pregnancy care and will advise you when it is necessary to come into the hospital to be assessed by an experienced midwife and if required an obstetric doctor.
Outside of these hours the Maternity unit is available for any concerns on (03) 5563 1441
The MOS manages pregnancy concerns from 20 weeks gestation that are pregnancy related. If the concern is not pregnancy related you will be redirected to your General Practitioner or if required the Emergency Department.
The midwife will triage your concern over the phone and advise you whether it is necessary to come into the hospital for review with a midwife and/or an obstetric doctor. If the decision is made for review, the midwife will book you an appointment time and ask you to come in for assessment.
Please call the MOS (in hours) to speak to a midwife before coming to the hospital.
Please contact the hospital if:
If you are in active labour, you will be admitted to the Birthing Suite. If you are in early labour, you may be able to return home for a period of time.
