Generally speaking there are three main modes of antenatal care delivery which women can choose from in Australia
- Shared care
- Midwifery group care
- Private obstetric care
The GPs at Evoca Women’s Health are able to support you in whatever choice you make regarding the above modes of care. The shared care model – whereby the care is shared between the GP and the midwifery and obstetric team at the hospital or in the community setting – means that your GP can still provide ongoing and postnatal care following the delivery. This valuable insight can make a big difference as you navigate life as a new parent and indeed into further pregnancies.
