Having a baby at Armadale-Kelmscott Memorial Hospital

Armadale Health Service provides ongoing care and support for low to medium risk obstetric patients throughout their pregnancy.

You and your partner will receive an excellent standard of care from our team of midwives, GP obstetricians and specialists.

Specialist obstetric cover is available 24-hours a day if your pregnancy is considered increased risk.
