In the first months of your pregnancy, your physician or midwife will provide you with all the standard care and information during routine prenatal appointments. Our offices are located in Gibsons, Wilson Creek and Sechelt.
Group Prenatal Care
In your third trimester, after 28 weeks, you will be invited to join 2 or 3 group prenatal appointments when you will have a chance to meet other expectant families as well as the other care providers who make up your team.
The midwives and physicians of the Sunshine Coast Maternity Care Group share being on call for you when you go into labour. One of us from the group will be with you when you have your baby, along with the excellent nurses, specialists and hospital staff at Sechelt Hospital. Talk with your midwife if you are planning to birth at home.
After your baby is born, you will continue to receive care from your primary physician or midwife. We will also connect you with local resources to support your growing family.
Hospital or Home
Families on the Sunshine Coast can choose to have their baby at Sechelt Hospital with the Maternity Care Group or birth at home with Registered Midwives.
We work alongside specialist colleagues, such as obstetricians and dieticians, as well as nurses and hospital staff at Sechelt Hospital. We can also refer families who require more services off coast.
