Our pregnancy care options offer support for women with normal and high-risk pregnancies. Each option is suited to a variety of different needs and designed to put you at the centre of your care. We encourage you to choose the type of pregnancy care that suits you best, in partnership with your GP, midwife or doctor.

Having a baby is an exciting and rewarding experience, but each pregnancy carries a different level of risk. Every person’s circumstances are unique. It is important that your care is delivered in a way that suits you and your circumstances.

We offer the following care options at Werribee Mercy Hospital:

It is important to discuss your care options with your GP and family to decide which one best suits you. You can also discuss your options with us at your first visit.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer maternity care for very high-risk pregnancies. These can include:

  • multiple births, including identical twins or triplets
  • complex medical conditions
  • pregnancies where a mother’s Body Mass Index (BMI) is over 40
  • an expected extreme premature birth.

If you have a very high-risk pregnancy, we will arrange for your referral or transfer to the closest and most appropriate hospital.
