Antenatal Attendance and Fees
We are happy to care for both privately insured and public patients. In ORIGYN both are treated with the same high level of care.
If you have private insurance, hospital management encourages you to use it.
Depending on your obstetric insurance there are usually NO out of pocket expenses for delivery and postnatal care.
The team at ORIGYN has a true passion for obstetrics and as such, aspires to provide safe individualised care, based on evidence-based practice. We would like every patient to feel that they have received the highest level of health care and support throughout their pregnancy.
We rotate our on call commitments to support each other, and to facilitate safe intra-partum care.
ORIGYN gives patients an alternative to the public hospital antenatal clinic with the advantage of having their own personal obstetric team.
Our Free Structure
Initial antenatal consultation $150 (Medicare rebate $71.70)
