Shore Birth obstetricians will care for you throughout your pregnancy, labour and birth and a Shore Birth midwife will care for you at home once you are discharged from hospital.
During the antenatal period, you have the option to meet all the Shore Birth Specialists if you wish. A Specialist Obstetrician is available 24/7 for any emergency calls and for women in labour.
These include antenatal visits, labour and delivery, postnatal midwifery care, and a six week check of the mother by the Shore Birth Specialists.
Private ultrasound scans, and special tests such as amniocentesis or CVS are charged separately. For further questions please feel free to contact the Shore Birth office.
Shared Care Option
Under the Shared Care option, a midwife or general practitioner is your lead maternity carer but you shared care with the Shore Birth Specialists.
A Shore Birth Specialist will see you for approximately 3 or 4 antenatal visits but you will see your Lead Maternity Carer for other appointments.
When you go into labour, you contact your LMC and once admitted to delivery suite your LMC will contact us. A Shore Birth Specialist will visit you during your labour and be present for your delivery. Your LMC will arrange your postnatal care and see you for your six week postnatal check.
The fee for Shared Care covers 3 – 4 antenatal appointments and your delivery.
If more than 4 antenatal visits are required, there will be an additional cost per appointment, or you may wish to upgrade to Full Care.
