At Narooma Medical Centre, we offer Antenatal Care – including shared care with Specialist. Antenatal Shared Care refers to the arrangement between a GP and a hospital or specialist obstetrician where your pregnancy care is divided between the two. What this means for you, the patient, is that you can continue to go to your regular GP who you are familiar with and who’s close to your home or workplace.
