Options of care during pregnancy
Shared Care with your GP
Shared care means that you are cared for by your GP/Obstetrician in consultation with the midwives. Shared Care enables you to continue seeing your family doctor, who you already know and trust, during your pregnancy, and this may be more convenient for you. Antenatal Clinics make our services more convenient for women to access ongoing antenatal care at the Moree Hospital.
These clinics are run by midwives and are for healthy pregnant women with normal risk for medical or obstetric conditions. Your schedule of appointments shall be commenced at your initial appointment.
Specialist Obstetric Care Monthly at Moree
Specialist Obstetricians provide outreach care once a month in Moree in collaboration with your GP. Women may require this type of care if they;
- Had a previous pregnancy requiring specialist care and/or hospitalisation
- Have a pregnancy that is not progressing normally
- are having a multiple pregnancy, e.g. twins
- Have Diabetes and/or other conditions
Aboriginal Birthing Service
Moree provides care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, and/or women whose baby will be Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander. The AMIHS service aims to provide culturally appropriate support and education during pregnancy, after birth and for children up to early school years. This service includes antenatal care, child and family health care, immunisation, child health checks, support service referrals and health education. You may contact the staff at AMIHS directly, or talk to your GP or the staff at the Pius X Medical Service or antenatal clinic to make a referral to our service.
