Hoppers Lane General Practice offers shared maternity care in Werribee. Our state-of-the-art modern facility has been open since May 2012 and is here to care for you and your baby from conception through birth and beyond. Our office features on-site pathology and radiology departments, and we retain allied health professionals on staff to eliminate the need to seek them out elsewhere. We are conveniently located across from Werribee Mercy Hospital. We offer high quality care in a family friendly environment and bulk bill for most services.
Our shared maternity care doctors share prenatal responsibilities allowing your family doctor continuous care of mother and child throughout pregnancy. Your primary doctor will take care of antenatal check-ups and prescribe referrals for tests, ultrasounds and vaccinations. After your child’s birth, your primary doctor will continue to care for your child as he or she grows.
The benefits of shared maternity care are that you continue to see your primary doctor, who will introduce you to other doctors and technicians in the office who will complement the treatment of you and your unborn child. After birth, your primary care doctor will provide your six-week check-up, immunisations for your new baby, offering advice and alternatives for family planning. He or she will continue to care for you and your family for years to come.
Contact us to schedule an appointment for your shared maternity care. Our friendly staff will make you feel right at home and provide all the services required for the successful birth of your child.
