Shared antenatal care may be an option for healthy women with a normal pregnancy. Maternity shared care is when a pregnancy is shared between your local GP (who has undergone extra training) and the hospital where your birth is planned to take place. Several of our doctors offer maternity shared care or obstetric shared care. To find out more about maternity share care, please call our team for information.
