The Women and Newborn Drug and Alcohol Service is the only tertiary state-wide service providing specialist clinical services and professional support to care for pregnant women with drug and alcohol dependence.

We use a multidisciplinary team approach to improve the health and well-being of the women and their babies.

What we do

We provide support, care and information for pregnant women with alcohol and drug dependency. Our midwifery-led team is based at King Edward Memorial Hospital and work alongside doctors, drug and alcohol specialist midwife social workers, dieticians and mental health professionals to ensure patients receive the highest level of care possible.

We routinely care for women with highly complex medical, social and psychiatric conditions.

We also provide an outreach service to the Women's prison to provide pregnancy outreach care.
