Maternity Shared-care with your GP

What is GP Shared Care?

Eastern Health Maternity Service offers a model of care in which you may choose an Eastern Health accredited General Practitioner (GP) who will provide your antenatal care during pregnancy. As an adjunct to the care your GP provides, you will also have a minimum of 3 antenatal appointments at the hospital with a midwife. You may also see a doctor when you attend the hospital.

Research indicates having a well-known carer during pregnancy results in less hospital admissions, reduced risk of interventions in labour and birth as well as higher breastfeeding rates and women being more satisfied with their childbearing experience.

Dr Bandula Rathnayake (Female GP) is an accredited GP who will provide your antenatal care during pregnancy.
