About this Program
Expecting a baby? Our physicians, physician assistant, and lactation consultant offer friendly, personal care to women with low-risk pregnancies who will deliver at the Civic Campus of The Ottawa Hospital. We accept referrals from local providers and pregnant women can also self-refer.
We would be pleased to share antenatal care with any physician or nurse practitioner who would like to remain involved during the pregnancy, or alternatively take over their complete care. As prenatal care is "outside the basket" of services for FHG/FHO/FHT/FHN models of care, your patients can be seen by our physicians without penalty to you.
We welcome women with OHIP, IFH, private or without any health insurance.
If you have no health insurance, please be sure to discuss costs associated with some testing and your hospital stay with your Somerset West Community Health Centre physician. They will direct you to the hospital accounting department where you can get more information about hospital rates.

We can help women who have no primary care provider find one by registering her at Health Care connect. After the delivery of your baby, we will continue to provide care until you have secured your own permanent practitioner.
