If you are having heavy vaginal bleeding or have severe lower abdominal pain please present to your nearest emergency department or phone 000 for an ambulance.
The Early Pregnancy Assessment Service (EPAS) is a clinic for women experiencing vaginal bleeding and / or lower abdominal pain under 20 weeks of pregnancy. EPAS is a Nurse/Midwife led clinic supported by the medical team including a staff specialist, sonographers pathology and support services.
The care provided in EPAS will meet the clinical, emotional and social needs of the individual woman.
Some women may require more than one visit before a diagnosis can be made. If medical or surgical management is recommended, this can be arranged in the clinic and scheduled for a subsequent date.
EPAS provides coordinated assessment, diagnostic, and management planning for threatened or diagnosed pregnancy loss. We also manage and treat women who have an ectopic or a molar pregnancy and require follow up.
