Mater's Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit (EPAU) is a specialist area in Mater Mothers’ Hospitals (MMH) that deals specifically with problems in early pregnancy.
EPAU is located on level 7 of Mater Mothers' Hospitals building at South Brisbane. A referral from your GP is not essential however appointments by telephone are required.
During your 30 minute appointment, you will be assessed by the EPAU team which consists of a nurse, doctor and sonographer (if a scan is required). The staff in EPAU will make a full assessment of the problems you are having, including a review of your symptoms, and a physical examination.
In some cases the visit may involve blood tests or an ultrasound scan. Often this scan is performed from the vagina as well as through the abdomen. Blood tests may take some hours to come back and as a result, it is not always possible to give an instant diagnosis. You will be contacted via phone to obtain results and arrange further appointments. The EPAU is open on weekdays from 9.00 am to 12.00 pm and is by appointment only.
