Congratulations on your pregnancy! We’re looking forward to being with you throughout this exciting experience.

Pregnancy care at the McMaster Family Health Team

Your existing health care team at McMaster Family Practice will see you during prenatal visits and will be assisted in your pregnancy care by other family physicians who work at your clinic and have special interest in obstetrical care. These physicians are affiliated with The Maternity Centre of Hamilton and will become more involved with your care later in your pregnancy. The on-call Maternity Center physician will assist with your delivery.

Where will I have my baby?

Your delivery will happen at St. Joseph’s Healthcare in Hamilton. A Maternity Center physician will oversee you care during your delivery and the care of your newborn at St. Joseph’s until your discharge. Your clinic will follow up with regular newborn and postpartum visits.

Are you interested in Prenatal Classes?

We highly recommend that you sign up for one of the excellent prenatal classes organized by the City of Hamilton’s Department of Public Health. Learn more about the classes by visiting their website.
