FAQs

If you can’t find your answer below please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

In order to book an appointment to see one of our Gynaecologists we require a referral from your GP.  This is so that we can fully understand your needs and any relevant aspects of your medical history in order to provide you the best possible care.

If you are wanting pregnancy care with one of our Obstetricians in the Femina Baby team you can book directly without a referral. Please see our Femina Baby website for more details.

When we receive your referral one of our team will contact you to book an appointment time that suits you.

If you have any questions or concerns about your booking or referral, please call us on (03) 9683430 during office hours or send an enquiry through our contact page on this website and we will endeavour to help.

If you have health insurance it is likely all, or most of your care will be covered by your insurance provider.  Having said that, it is worth getting prior approval before proceeding with your consultation or treatment.

The consultation fee will depend on the type of appointment you require.  It is easiest for you to give us a call on (03) 9683430 or email us: admin@femina.health for a quote.

If your consultation is not covered by an insurance provider, payment will be requested at the end
of your appointment. You can pay by EFTPOS or bank transfer.  We cannot accept payment by cash.
