As soon as your pregnancy is confirmed by a GP, get a referral to one of our obstetricians.
Please note your obstetrician does not book in for you. When you do book in, you will need the following information:
- name of obstetrician
- reason for admission (pregnancy)
- health fund membership and policy details
- GP’s details
- emergency contact details
- medications information
Once you’ve seen your chosen obstetrician for your first appointment, go to our eAdmission portal.
If you are using eAdmissions for the first time:
- Select ‘Create Account’
- Enter your details and create a password
- Click validate. We will text a validation code to your phone, enter code into the box on screen and select OK.
- Click ‘start new admission’ and follow the prompts.
If you are a returning patient:
- Log in with your email address and password
- Select the ‘copy’ button next to your previous admission which will copy over your details and most of your previous medical history for you to verify.
You’ll receive an email with your booking confirmation. If you have any questions about your booking, please call 02 4732 7397 and we’ll do our very best to help.
The eAdmission process is divided into two parts; admission forms and health history. Once your eAdmission is lodged, our Maternity Booking staff will process your booking. They’ll post the information and paperwork to you and include a date and time when a midwife will call you to confirm further information about your pregnancy. We’re looking forward to seeing you.

Need-to-know health fund information
Health insurance is an important part of budgeting for the birth of your baby. To minimise out-of-pocket expenses, we have negotiated agreements with all major health funds. While that’s a great start for you, it’s really important to consider other factors.
For instance, most health funds do not automatically cover neonatal care, unless family cover has been in place for three months. So, if you only have singles health insurance, consider a transfer to family cover at least three months before your expected due date.
If you stay on singles cover and your baby is unwell and requires admission to our Special Care Nursery, you’ll need to settle the baby’s account on discharge from the hospital. If you’re expecting a multiple birth, singles health insurance will only cover one baby during your hospital stay. Family health insurance is highly advisable.
It’s best to contact your health fund as soon as possible so there are no financial surprises.
If you’re not insured and would like to have your baby at Prince of Wales Private Hospital, please contact us to discuss fees.
The fee for the routine paediatrician in-hospital check-up is not included in your hospital stay as each paediatrician charges independently. Therefore, there’s an additional out-of-pocket fee for this.
We believe in transparency, so whatever your cover, an estimate of costs and any out of pocket excess or co-payments associated with your hospital stay will be sent to you following your pre-admission consultation.
