Young Women and Adolescent Clinic

An antenatal clinic for young people is available at Women and Newborn Health Service (WNHS). It provides specialised multidisciplinary antenatal care for young people up to the age of 18 years and who live in WA. This includes obstetric and midwifery care, social work support and psychology intervention from a team with special interest and expertise in the care of adolescents. The team provides “one stop clinics” where multiple disciplines come together to provide care in a single visit. Continuity of care continues when patients are admitted to hospital as the team is able to see patients on the ward.

The clinic also provides enhanced post natal support with home visiting service from adolescent support midwives, post natal contraception and post natal psychology support.
