Know My Midwife Program (KMM)
The Know My Midwife program gives mums-to-be the very best in Midwifery Continuity-of-Care through the coordination of regular antenatal & postnatal appointments with our highly experienced Midwives and your chosen Obstetrician.
This gives you the opportunity to form meaningful and trusted relationships with those who will be with you on your path to motherhood.
How does the Know My Midwife Program work?
Once we have received a referral from your Obstetrician or you complete the enquiry below, the Midwife will make contact with you to arrange an antenatal appointment and meet you.
Know My Midwife consultations may also be available via Telehealth using phone or computer – ask us for details, if you’re unable to attend in person.
The Midwife and your Obstetrician will share your care. They both will provide you and your loved ones with individual care and follow you through your journey.

How to book a place
Appointments are Medicare bulk-billed so there is no out-of-pocket cost to mums-to-be; it’s all part of our maternity service at Cairns Private Hospital. If you’d like to take part in the program and have already booked in with your chosen Cairns Private Hospital Obstetrician, then ask your Obstetrician for a referral at your earliest appointment & we’ll do the rest.
