Antenatal Shared Care (ANSC) is an option offered to all pregnant women who are assessed as suitable for the program. Care is provided collaboratively by the general practitioner (GP) and the hospital-based service.

The ANSC program aims to:

  • Provide pregnant women with flexibility, choice, and continuity of care
  • Cater for the preferences and needs of women from culturally and diverse backgrounds
  • Enhance the skills of GPs caring for women during pregnancy
  • Promote communication between GPs and the participating hospitals

To provide ANSC to pregnant women who are giving birth in South West Sydney Local Health District hospitals, GPs must be recognised as an ANSC provider. To become a recognised provider, a GP completes the application and attends a mandatory ANSC orientation session.

To maintain ANSC recognition GPs must complete 3 hours of pregnancy-related continuous professional development (CPD) each year. Evidence of CPD attendance is to be provided to SWSPHN.


The February 2024 issue of the Baby Monitor is now available

Issue 20 of the Baby Monitor, the SWSPHN Antenatal Shared Care newsletter, is now available to download. You can access it here or from the newsletter folder in the documents section.
