When you choose private, you have access to your own paediatrician. Speak to your obstetrician and ask for a referral.

Paediatricians don’t routinely attend births unless requested, however they do attend Caesarean section births. They will also attend twin births, premature and breech births. If your baby needs extra care and support they may be admitted to the Special Care Nursery within the maternity services of Darwin Private Hospital.

Regardless of the obstetrician you choose, we offer an on-call paediatrician to provide emergency cover, as needed 24-hours. You’ll receive a separate invoice for your paediatrician, which usually includes an out-of-pocket gap cost.
