eXXpectations is the private Obstetrics and Gynaecology practice of Dr Pauline Joubert and Dr Melinda Heywood. We are located in The Wesley Medical Centre at The Wesley Hospital in Brisbane. Although we prefer to deliver at The Wesley Hospital, in the unlikely event that your baby needs delivery before 32 weeks, both Pauline and Melinda are also accredited at Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane.

Our mission is for female Obstetricians and Gynaecologists to provide high quality healthcare for women of all ages. We believe that women should be able to make an informed choice about safe childbirth or treatment options without feeling pressured.

We strongly believe that continuity of care in pregnancy leads to better outcomes for both mothers and babies. This means that whenever possible you will see your chosen obstetrician at every antenatal visit, for your delivery, and for your postpartum care. In the event that you obstetrician is unavailable for some reason, you will be cared for by either the other obstetrician in the practice, or by one of the two other female obstetricians with whom we share calls.

We aim to:

  • be patient-centred
  • act with honesty and integrity
  • be family friendly
  • make your time with us as stress-free as possible.

Our doctors and secretaries work together closely as a team to look after you. We also collaborate with a wide network of related healthcare professionals that includes anaesthetists, endocrinologists, physicians, midwives, paediatricians, physiotherapists, ultrasonographers and radiologists.
