Antenatal Services

Sunraysia Community Health Midwives and GP services are committed to helping to achieve the best outcomes for women and their babies to ensure they have the best start to life.

Our Antenatal Clinic provides quality care for expecting parents before, during and after their pregnancy. We aim to support and guide parents in an open and nurturing environment to achieve the best outcome for them and their baby.

Our Service

Antenatal care is an essential part of pregnancy and should start as soon as you find out you’re expecting. Having a healthy pregnancy is one of the best ways to promote a healthy birth.

Our Antenatal services acknowledge that pregnancy is a crucial time to promote healthy behaviours, parenting skills, explore social issues and offer support in these areas. Good antenatal care links a woman and her family with the health system, contributing to good health through a woman’s pregnancy.

At SCHS Antenatal Services you can

  • Seek advice prior to becoming pregnant
  • Track how your pregnancy is progressing with routine antenatal appointments
  • Participate in shared care with a specialist obstetrician
  • Have a postnatal check for you and your baby
  • Link in with other SCHS services to cater for your total wellbeing.

Eligibility

All pregnant women are eligible for this service.

Some women may need the additional support of specialist care which will be determined by our team as your pregnancy progresses.

Antenatal care referrals will be accepted from your General Practitioner or self referral. Our intake team at SCHS will contact you for an appointment.
