ANTENATAL SHARED CARE
Most of our doctors are accredited to provide care under the specialist Antenatal Shared Care program offered by the Royal Hospital for Women (RHW).
The Antenatal Shared Care Program involves sharing your pregnancy care between the Royal Hospital for Women and your family doctor. It offers choice, convenience and continuity of care for women during pregnancy.
Advantages of the Antenatal Shared Care Program:
+ Personalised care with the same doctor;
+ Ongoing care for you and your family before and after your
baby is born;
+ Convenience, flexibility and low wait times for appointments;
+ Affordable alternative to private Obstetric care;
Who is Antenatal Shared Care for?
+ Healthy women with uncomplicated pregnancies;

+ Women who wish to deliver their baby at the RHW.
