About this Program
Congratulations on your pregnancy! The Somerset West Community Health Centre pregnancy team is privileged that you have chosen us to be part of this most exciting time for you and your family. Once registered with us all pregnant patients are assigned to one of our Pregnancy Team physicians. Prenatal appointments are offered weekdays as well as Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
You will see a physician or physician assistant at each prenatal check-up, and possibly other members of the team. At each visit we will assess the health of both you and your baby. We take time to address any concerns you may have, and provide education about pregnancy. Information is also available on prenatal classes, labour support, birth planning and staying healthy during pregnancy.
Your initial obstetric appointment is with Bonnie, our Prenatal Point Person. She is also a Registered Dietitian and lactation consultant, and coordinates our obstetrics program.
Please note that all our physicians on the Pregnancy Team are female, however, you may be seen and examined in our clinic or hospital by other team members who are male.
