We are working with The Children’s Hospital at Westmead to respond to the needs of the hundreds of NSW families affected by the death of a child shortly after or before birth by giving them the opportunity to understand the reasons for their loss.
The NSW Perinatal Postmortem Service is a statewide service that manages all non-coronial perinatal postmortem needs. Our service provides families with high-quality and timely assistance, focused on compassionate and dignified care.
Expert non-coronial perinatal postmortem services and a range of ancillary tests performed by credentialed perinatal pathologists are available from three centres at Westmead, Randwick and Newcastle.
Our Care Coordinator helps support families and referrers to better understand the service. We operate Monday to Friday during business hours. Enquiries outside these hours should be emailed to our Care Coordinator who will be in touch the next available working day.
If you need after-hours or urgent postmortem advice, please call:
