Hatch will provide a no-obligation bulk-billed initial consultation to help you understand the Hatch model of care and decide if it’s right for you.
The program will be offered to you if your pregnancy is screened as low-intermediate risk at the time of booking.
Antenatal and postnatal care includes 3-4 obstetrician visits and 10-12 midwife visits.
Appointments will be with the same one or two clinicians, although a known obstetrician cannot be offered for the birth.
Hatch will happily accept women up until 37 weeks’ gestation, provided eligibility criteria with Hatch is met. All women who see Hatch after 28 weeks’ gestation will be required to pay the pregnancy management fee, regardless of how many appointments they attend, or if the management fee has been paid to another doctor or hospital already. If you are paying the management fee again, you are not entitled to the Medicare rebate.
