Maternity Pre-admission

So everything is ready for you when you arrive at Cairns Private Hospital we ask that you complete our online booking registration form at your earliest convenience.

We recommend you allow 15-30 minutes for this process. Please ensure you have your private health insurance details and Medicare number on hand.

MyCare will save your admission information in your secure account. If you need to be admitted to the hospital again you can log in and submit a new form where you will have the option to update any information that may have changed from your previous admission.

If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to call (07) 4052 5280 or contact us via email at hello.cph@ramsayhealth.com.au

You need to take the following steps (even if it is not the first baby you have had with us) once your pregnancy has been confirmed:

STEP 1: Referral to an Obstetrician

Go to your General Practitioner (GP) and request a referral to an Obstetrician of your choice. Find information on our website about our Obstetricians

STEP 2: Online booking registration

Complete our hospital online booking registration form (click here) at your earliest convenience. Once completed, you will receive an automated email to confirm it has been received and one of our team will contact you in due course to arrange a midwife pre-admission appointment.

STEP 3: Midwife Pre-admission Appointment

Expect to be contacted by one of our staff soon after completing your online booking registration form, to book your pre-admission midwife appointment. 

Alternatively, or if you require assistance with booking this appointment, please contact 07 4052 5280 to speak with our Maternity Care Navigator to arrange a pre-admission appointment with a midwife at Cairns Private Hospital.

This appointment is a vital part of the process. It is an information sharing time, which ensures that when you arrive at the hospital your medical record is complete and ready for use, and that we have the opportunity to share information with you also. This can be completed via a telephone call. Once this appointment is done, your booking process is complete.

Our midwives can provide you with support and information throughout your pregnancy, and for the first 6 weeks following your birth.
