Shared Care enables your GP to provide your antenatal care from their surgery. Shared Care operates in conjunction with the Calvary Hospital Antenatal Clinic allowing antenatal visits to be shared with your GP. This model of care is particularly valuable if your GP will be providing health care for you and your family once the baby is born as it allows your GP to get to know you and your baby. If complications arise during your pregnancy, your GP will refer you to a specialist.
It is important to make an appointment with your GP early in your pregnancy to discuss your pregnancy care and birth options.
Women choosing Shared Care will birth in the Calvary Birthing Suite, it is therefore important to call the hospital Maternity and Women’s Health Unit to arrange an appointment.
