This type of care is for women who prefer to see their GP 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 who is registered with Werribee Mercy Hospital as an accredited antenatal practitioner.
You will see your GP for most of your antenatal care and visit the Outpatients Department at Werribee Mercy Hospital for key check-ups with our doctors and midwives.
To assist you in finding a suitable affiliated practitioner who can perform Shared Care at Werribee Mercy Hospital please refer to our current list of GPs.
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.
