"My antenatal care with MGP5 at KEMH"

About: King Edward Memorial Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

I recently gave birth to my third baby at King Edward Memorial Hospital.

My antenatal care was provided by a midwifery group practice at the hospital. The experience was wonderful compared to the standard antenatal clinic appointments I attended for my second pregnancy. I really appreciated being able to see the same small group of midwives each appointment and develop a relationship with them.

I felt like my particular concerns were understood and I didn't need to repeat them each appointment. I also appreciated being able to see familiar faces throughout my pregnancy, the birth and postpartum. I felt really well supported through the unpredictable process of pregnancy and childbirth and feel an overwhelming appreciation for the care I was given.

I strongly recommend this model of care for low-risk pregnancies and would definitely opt for this again if I have another baby.

Dear Kangarooezz,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about your experience with the Midwifery Group Practice (MGP) and King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH). I would also like to congratulate you on the birth of your third baby!

I am so pleased to hear that you had such a positive experience with the MGP and that you felt supported and understood. It's great to hear that you would recommend this service, as we are definitely interested in expanding this model of care so that more women in the community can access the same continuity of care throughout their pregnancy and birthing journey.

I am also happy to hear that you felt that you were listened to and that your concerns were understood. We're very proud of the service our staff provides and it is heartwarming to hear that you have built such great relationships with the midwives.

Thank you again for sharing your experience. I wish you and your family all the best.

Kind regards

Jodi Graham
