Shared Maternity Care

Midtown Medical Clinic Services Shared Maternity Care

Shared Care

Doctors Adrienne Chan, Sarah Matenson, and Jennifer Anderson are able and experienced at providing shared antenatal care for women proposing to have their babies at The Royal Women’s, Mercy, Northern, Sunshine/Western, Monash and Box Hill Hospitals.

Shared Care means that during the course of your pregnancy you visit the hospital on only two to four occasions and our Doctors do the remainder of the healthcare and monitoring.

Comprehensive communication between our Doctors and the hospital ensures continuity of care.

It is often more convenient for women to attend Midtown Medical Clinic as it may reduce travelling time, waiting time at hospital and reduce time away from work and family.

The initial appointment to discuss your pregnancy requires a 30 minute consultation.

Routine antenatal appointments take place at around 12, 22, 30, 33, 38 and 40 weeks.The visits to your hospital of choice occur in between.  These appointments are also 30 minutes, unless your doctor advises otherwise.

After the birth, a 6 week check up occurs. A 30 minute appointment is required for yourself and a 30 minute appointment for your baby. For these appointments, please bring your baby book and any other documents from the hospital.

Please contact our reception staff on 9650 4284 if you have any other questions about antenatal and shared care.

To arrange an appointment with one of our Shared Maternity Care Doctors, please phone 9650 4284.  You can also book online, selecting either the ‘Shared Care’ appointment type or the ‘6 week post natal check’ appointment type.
