If you can’t reach your doctor and need help related to your pregnancy, call the Obstetrical Assessment Unit.

For problems related to pregnancy:

If you are

Less than 20 weeks pregnant, go to the Emergency Department

If you are

More than 20 weeks pregnant, go to the Obstetrical Assessment Unit

If the problem isn’t about your pregnancy, go to a walk-in clinic or emergency department.

If you need immediate help, you may enter the hospital through the Emergency Department entrance. If you park in front of the Emergency Department, you have to move your vehicle right after you drop the patient off.

If you think you are in labour, or if you have questions or concerns about your pregnancy, phone the Obstetrical Assessment Unit (Triage) :

General Campus:    613-737-8012
Civic Campus:   613-761-5112

Nurses are available 24 hours a day to answer your questions.
