Canberra Maternity Options

It’s not always clear what you need to do when you first find out you’re having a baby. Canberra Maternity Options is the new way to learn about and access Canberra’s public maternity system.

 To access Canberra’s public maternity system you will now:

  • call 5124 9977 to arrange your first appointment with a midwife

  • book an appointment with a GP for early pregnancy care

  • meet a midwife early in your pregnancy to talk about public pregnancy and birthing options, complete a health and wellbeing assessment and discuss the best options for you

  • receive ongoing local support before, during and after pregnancy.
