123319 - Shared Maternity Care

  • : Online


This Shared Maternity Care Collaborative workshop provides clinical updates on each stage of pregnancy with topics addressing pre-conception, antenatal and postnatal care.

Relevance to General Practice

General Practitioners (GPs) are the first contact for women who are considering pregnancy or are currently pregnant. Diagnosis and appropriate management of early pregnancy and its complications is an important role for all GPs. 

Preconception counselling is encouraged by the Collaborative to foster optimal pregnancy care. Optimum maternal health during preconception and pregnancy is recognised as an essential component to the outcome of the pregnancy and may have a potentially lifelong impact on infant wellbeing 
It is imperative that shared care affiliates involved in care of pregnant women are vigilant in assessing risk factors for fetal growth restriction as well as making evidence based plan for management of fetuses that are small for gestational age (SGA). 

New mothers and their infants are high frequency users of primary health care services in Australia providing opportunities for shared care affiliates to engage with women about common postnatal morbidities.
