BC Women's Maternity Urgent Care Centre

We assess and treat pregnant patients who are registered to deliver at BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre, or have delivered and are up to six weeks post-birth, who present with acute illnesses or injuries related to their pregnancy.
The BC Women’s Maternity Urgent Care Centre is the province's only urgent care centre dedicated to caring for pregnant and postpartum women.

Visit the Maternity Urgent Care Centre if:

  • Your water has broken or you think that you are in labour
  • You are scheduled for a C-section but go into labour early
  • You are experiencing bleeding in your 2nd or 3rd trimester
  • You have been diagnosed as a high blood pressure pregnancy
  • You are experiencing a lack of fetal movement
The Maternity Urgent Care Centre is located at entrance 97, which is between the Oak Street entrance and the Willow Street entrance. See our wayfinding map for more details. 

If you have an urgent obstetrical concern and are unable to come to the Maternity Urgent Care Centre, contact your maternity care provider immediately.

Other care services

If you are pregnant and are experiencing symptoms that are not in the above list, please contact your family doctor or maternity care provider. 

If you are not pregnant and require emergency care, please seek care at your local emergency department or call 911. For non-life threatening illness or injuries, you can visit an urgent and primary care centre. You can view local urgent care and emergency department wait times in real time.  

What to expect
When you arrive, you will see a triage nurse who will provide an initial assessment. Individuals with life-threatening illnesses or injuries are seen first. 

We appreciate how stressful a visit to the Urgent Care Centre may be for you. We try to see all of our patients as quickly as possible while maintaining high quality care. If you feel that your health situation has changed while you are waiting, please tell a nurse right away.
