This month Mater Mothers’ Hospitals will begin construction of Australia’s first 24/7 Pregnancy Assessment Centre (PAC) with completion scheduled for April 2017.
The PAC will provide around the clock care for any woman who needs help from day one of pregnancy until six weeks after birth.
In Australia, as many as one in four women expecting a baby experience complications early in their pregnancy—from 0 to 20 weeks gestation—including bleeding and other issues.
Currently if a woman is experiencing complications with her pregnancy, especially when her baby is less than 12 weeks gestation, she has to either present at a hospital Emergency Department or schedule a visit to her GP.
During construction of the PAC, patients requiring access to the Pregnancy Assessment and Observation Unit (PAOU) should proceed to the main reception of Mater Mothers’ Hospitals on Level 5. Patients will then be provided with assistance to transfer to PAOU on Level 10.
Every dollar raised by Mater Little Miracles this year will go towards the construction of the new Pregnancy Assessment Centre. If you would like to support Mater Foundation, please visit materfoundation.org.au or call 3163 8000.
