Posted by Boy Mum (as ),
I recently gave birth to my first child at King Edward Memorial Hospital. I chose the Midwifery Group Program for my model of care and was allocated into the MGP4's team.
I was recommended this model of care through a girlfriend who previously gave birth through KEMH's MGP.
This model of care was incredible and I feel so lucky to have been under the watchful eye of women who make up MGP4.
Being pregnant for the first time can be a daunting and scary time. MGP4 helped to ease my anxiety as a first time mum. Appointments were super easy to make and change. Appointments always ran on time and I was never left waiting.
Having someone available to talk to 24/7 helped to ease my anxiety and ensured support for myself, the health of myself and my baby.
The women in MGP4 are understanding, compassionate and supportive.
I believe pregnant women definitely benefit from this model of care.
It was quite hard to find information on and I believe it needs to be better advertised to the public so they know this type of care exists. Like I said, if a girlfriend hadn't told me about MGP I would have no idea it existed.
Thank you MGP4.
