• This type of care is for women who prefer to see their GP or community midwife for most of their pregnancy care. Shared Care is only appropriate for women who have uncomplicated pregnancies.

    To take part in this type of care you must have a GP or Community Health Midwife who is registered with Mercy Hospital for Women as an accredited antenatal care provider.  

    You will see your GP or midwife for most of your antenatal care and visit the Outpatients Department at Mercy Hospital for Women for key check-ups with our doctors and midwives.

    Please visit mercyhealth.com.au for a list of accredited practitioners who can perform Shared Care at Mercy Hospital for Women.

    During the birth of your baby, you will be cared for by our birthing suite midwives. You can expect to stay in hospital for two nights after a normal birth and three nights if you have a caesarean. A midwife from our home visiting team will see you at home to continue your care.
