Options of care during pregnancy - Narrabri

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 Narrabri 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.

  • A pregnancy that is not progressing normally
