About us

The Pregnancy Pod is home to Australia’s leading specialists in pregnancy and newborn care. We provide highly expert and personalised care from Australia’s leading maternal fetal medicine (MFM) specialists.

Like peas in a pod - 24 hour private pregnancy and birth care located adjacent to the Monash Health Precinct

The Pregnancy Pod is our modern, Scandanavian inspired, state-of-the art centre of excellence that is co-located with Melbourne’s premier women’s imaging service The Women’s Scan Room. We are adjacent to Monash Children’s Hospital, Monash Health and Jessie McPherson Private Hospital. Our engaged and friendly reception staff will ensure you are seen early in pregnancy. You will require a referral from your general practitioner. Women will need private maternity insurance for Jessie McPherson Private Hospital or women may choose Private in Public at Monash Medical Centre if they do not have private insurance. We choose Jessie McPherson Private Hospital as our preferred private hospital due to the private personalised facilities and attentive, expert midwifery, physiotherapy and breastfeeding care.

Importantly, this service is unequalled in Victoria for access to health care services. If required, you will have immediate access to the vast network of onsite medical and nursing specialists, operating theatres, 24 hour on site anaesthetics and Monash Children’s Hospital should you or your baby need this level of care. You and your baby will always be in the safest hands and never separated if your baby requires care. No other hospital service in Victoria can provide this level of quaternary health care. Please contact reception for the different care models and a fee estimate. You are encouraged to book very early in your pregnancy as numbers are capped to ensure we can provide the highly attentive care we are renowned for.
