The Royal Women's Hospital community clinics operate at Kensington, Fawkner and Moonee Ponds. At these clinics you can have some or all of your pregnancy care close to home.
|Midwives and doctors from the Women’s will see you at these clinics. |
If undertaking shared maternity care, you can have most of your hospital visits at a community clinic, including your 28 and 36 week visits. However your 41 week visit will be at the hospital and you will have your baby at the hospital.
|Community clinics are convenient for some women as they are close to home and provide an opportunity to meet other pregnant women in their local area. |
|Some clinics have language-specific childbirth education and parenting classes in these community settings. Contact Childbirth Education for more information.|
|If you are interested in having your appointments at a community clinic ask your GP to include this on your referral and let the hospital midwife/doctor know at your first appointment.|
