Antenatal Care

Shared Care Antenatal Clinic

Shared antenatal care is an option for healthy women experiencing a normal pregnancy where the care is shared between a Doctor with visiting rights at Latrobe Regional Hospital and a midwife.

This gives you a chance to meet midwives who work at the hospital and spend some time discussing:

  • The birthing experience
  • Support during childbirth
  • Choices in childbirth
  • Birth plans
  • Breast feeding
  • And much more

We have set up this model of care to give pregnant women more choice and to enhance the care given to you by you Doctor.

Your Doctor will still be responsible for your care when you are in labour.

Our Clinics run in sessions either on Wednesday mornings or Thursday all day.

Mostly 2 midwives share each session so it is better if you book into the same session each time so you can get to know one or two midwives. 

Good communication is vital between midwife and Doctor, therefore we have designed a handheld record for you to carry.

Please bring this with you each time you have an antenatal visit and when you go into labour.
