Pregnancy Assessment Centre

Mater Mothers’ has opened Queensland’s only dedicated 24/7 Pregnancy Assessment Centre. The service provides around the clock assessment and care for women experiencing pregnancy related complications or concerns during any stage of pregnancy and up to six weeks after the birth of your baby. 

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.

PAC is adjacent to Birth Suite and provides 24 hours a day 7 days a week care and assessment for private and publicly-funded women during any stage of pregnancy and up to 6 weeks after the birth of your baby.

The unit, managed by Mater Midwives, arranges care in the same way as hospital emergency departments, by using a triage process to prioritise women according to their individual situation. Women have the ability to access the support of obstetric, medical and allied health professionals as required.

Information for patients

This service is free of charge for women who are booked with, or plan to book with a private obstetrician at Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane. Your private obstetrician will be contacted if you present to the Pregnancy Assessment Centre.

If you have private health insurance and are booked in to have your baby at another private maternity hospital, you will still be able to access the service for a fee, which will be provided at the time of the service. We will contact your obstetrician on arrival to the centre.  

The Pregnancy Assessment Centre provides access to a specialist obstetrician 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, immediate ultrasounds and results, blood tests and immediate hospital admission if required.


For early pregnancy bleeding or pain, or urgent pregnancy related issues please present to the Pregnancy Assessment Centre 24 hours a day 7 days a week or call 07 3163 7000.
