Midwife Coordinators are available at six public hospitals to coordinate GP Obstetric Shared Care. Through experience and education they are expert clinical practitioners in antenatal/postnatal management. The Midwife Coordinator will assist with the liaison between your GP, the participating hospital and any other health workers involved in your care during and after your pregnancy. They will ensure that the management of clinical activities is effective, professional and caring.
They are also available to rural GPs who require information even if you are not giving birth at a metropolitan hospital.
The Midwife Coordinators can be contacted only between 8:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday – Friday (excluding Public Holidays)
