Information on our maternity sites and how to find us.

Monash Medical Centre

Monash Medical Centre, located in Clayton, has tertiary-level operating theatres, adult intensive care facilities, coronary care unit and all major specialist and subspecialist disciplines and is co-located with Monash Children’s Hospital with a level 6 NICU as well as the Ritchie Centre and Research Translational Precinct.

This gives capacity for highly complex tertiary and quaternary maternity care for the most complicated of pregnancies, babies requiring fetal surgery or highly specialised diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, through to twin and triplet pregnancies, pregnancies with severe early fetal growth restriction, pregnancies with a chance of significantly preterm birth (babies born from 23 weeks to 32 weeks), pregnancies with very early rupture of the amniotic membranes, vaginal birth after caesarean section, and planned breech births, with the backup of a fully modern tertiary birth suite, specialist fetal surveillance, fetal diagnostics and pregnancy assessment 24 hours a day.

Monash Medical Centre also cares for well women with uncomplicated pregnancies in hospital clinic or shared care with accredited General Practitioners. If you live in the local area or require complex care in your pregnancy, we will care for you (and your baby) at this site.

Monash Women’s clinic

The Maternity clinic is located in the grounds of Monash Medical Centre, at the back of the hospital, near Ronald McDonald house and Kanooka Grove. Your face to face (in-person) pregnancy care visits will generally occur at the maternity clinic on Tarella Road, Clayton.

If you need assessment outside of clinic hours, the Pregnancy Assessment area is fully staffed 24 hours a day and is located on level 5 inside the main hospital.

Labour care (and birth of your baby or babies) occurs on the Birth Suite which is co-located with the Pregnancy Assessment on level 5. After your baby is born, you and your baby will be cared for on the Maternity Ward on the same level.

Our service is always evolving to meet your needs and in late 2020, we opened our dedicated Perinatal Care Centre.
