The Centenary Hospital for Women and Children offer pregnancy and childbirth education sessions which are available for all services and programs at the hospital. Women and their partners or support person are encouraged to attend these classes.

Bookings

The Centenary Hospital has a single entry point for all maternity referrals.  Once we receive a referral from your GP we will allocate you to the best model of care to suit your needs.  If you would like a continuity of midwifery care, a Birth Centre birth or a publicly funded Homebirth please ask your doctor to write this on the referral.   These options are described in more detail below.
