Our maternity services

Every baby’s birth is unique - our caregivers are here to support you and your doctor to meet your personal birthing and care needs. 

Maternity options available 

If you are a new mum and considering your options, the following outlines maternity services at St John of God Midland Public Hospital:

  • We provide a public maternity service for patients that live in our catchment area. The service includes your own patient room and access to a range of services. 
  • We offer shared care arrangements for maternity patients with some local general practitioners, to assist with continuity of care. Find out more.
  • We do not provide a private maternity service. Our nearby sister hospitals St John of God Subiaco Hospital and St John of God Murdoch Hospital provide high-quality private maternity service.
  • We do accept non-Medicare patients, however you will be cared for under the public system and the same rules will apply. Fees will be payable for a range of services as a non-Medicare patient at our hospital.
