KEMH Next Birth After Caesarean clinic Perth PDF Print E-mail

The  Next Birth After Caesarean clinic was established at King Edward Memorial Hospital in Perth in July 2008.   It is a clinic for women with a previous caesarean section who are pregnant with a subsequent child.   Women who attend the clinic receive accurate, evidence-based information to allow them to make an informed decision about how their child will be born.   The woman is supported in her choice, no matter whether it is for a repeat caesarean or vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC).

 

The clinic is a collaborative clinic with most of the antenatal care being provided by midwives.   The NBAC midwives are well informed about birth after caesarean and empathetic to the needs of women with a previous caesarean.  Women see an obstetrician twice during the pregnancy.    This may increase if issues arise during the pregnancy that are outside the scope of midwifery care. 

 

Women need a GP referral to book in to the clinic.   The number of the clinic is (08) 9340 1626.
