For private mums

Private obstetric care is for private mums who want to choose their doctor.

Pregnancy care is provided from the doctor’s rooms, many of which are located within Northern Beaches Hospital.

Mums have a guaranteed private room and partners can stay overnight. Delivery is by your chosen obstetrician and care after birth is guided by the same doctor.

Mums can now also give birth in one of our large, comfortable birthing baths.

As a private mum you receive:

  • Your choice of Obstetrician
