Western Obstetrics offers a team-based approach to care, one that is midwifery-led with GP Obstetrician support and access to a team of maternity health service providers (including lactation consultants, a psychologist and women's health physiotherapist)
This team approach ensures your care is individualised to your specific needs and situation.
At Western Obstetrics, we firmly believe that exceptional care should be accessible to all. That's why we proudly provide standard pregnancy care with a GP Obstetrician and Midwife at an affordable price*. While there is a cost per consultation, some services associated with your care will be bulk billed. While some additional charges do apply for non-standard services and consultations with our allied health providers, we try to limit the gap where possible. For more information on our costs, click here.
Our approach revolves around three distinct models of care, ensuring you have options that best suit your needs:
- Western Obstetrics Care: delivering at Osborne Park Hospital
- Public Shared Care: delivering at another Public Hospital
- Private Shared Care: delivering at SJOG Subiaco with Specialist Obstetrician, Dr Charles Armstrong, who works alongside Western Obstetrics.
No matter which model you choose, rest assured that you and your baby's well-being will always be our top priority. We are committed to providing comprehensive antenatal care, personalised to meet your unique requirements, and ensuring your pregnancy journey is as smooth and rewarding as possible. Discover exceptional care without compromising on affordability at Western Obstetrics!

YOUR WESTERN OBSTETRICS PREGNANCY JOURNEY
Your first appointment with us will be an initial triage consultation with one of our midwives. During this consultation we will get to know a little about you, your pregnancy journey so far, previous pregnancies and what you expect with your pregnancy journey.
GP OBSTETRICIAN APPOINTMENTS
Your initial appointment with one of our GP Obstetricians will revolve around antenatal screening. This will include undertaking a thorough health and well-being check-up and the scheduling of appointments to see your GP Obstetrician throughout your journey, where they will regularly check your health and pregnancy progress.
You will see your midwife at frequent intervals to monitor and manage your progress, whilst being provided with education and information along the way. These appointments will provide you with an opportunity to ask questions and understand what to expect along the way.
Both your GP Obstetrician and Midwife will discuss and assist you with; designing your pregnancy plan, monitoring health issues, bedside scans, radiology and pathology investigations, referrals as needed to other allied health services and importantly provide a referral to your choice of birthing hospital.
