Women must be well and have minimal symptoms. Unfortunately women are not able to self-refer. Women who have concerns about bleeding and/or pain in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy should contact their GP or Lead Maternity Carer (Midwife). Clinic Location & Times Clinics run Monday – Friday afternoons from 1pm. Women should report to Hinetuanuku Women's Health Clinic on Ground Floor at North Shore Hospital for their clinic appointment.
