Antenatal Shared Care
Dr Kirsten Scott and Dr Michelle Wellington are accredited Maternity Care Affiliates who work in collaboration with Mercy Hospital for Women, Mercy Werribee, The Women’s Hospital ( Parkville ) and The Women’s Hospital ( Sandringham) for Antenatal Shared Care.
A Shared Care GP is a general practitioner with additional training in obstetrics, who is appointed by the hospital to provide complete pregnancy care to public patients who are not going through a private obstetrician.
You will be seen by the Shared Care GP every month for the first six months, fortnightly for the next two months and then every week for the last month. They will arrange all necessary blood tests, ultrasounds, hospital visits etc. during this time.
You will be referred to the relevant hospital, where you will have about four visits during the nine months. This will be where delivery will take place, usually by a midwife, plus care for the baby and mother whilst in hospital. This way, both the hospital and your Shared Care GP are kept fully informed of your progress i.e. they “share” the care of you.

Our treatment room is equipped to offer a range of procedures such as Implanon® contraceptive implant insertion and removal, suture of lacerations, skin biopsies, minor lesion removals, joint steroid injections, plaster cast application and removal, ECGs and blood/pathology collection. All equipment is sterile and maintained according to infection control guidelines to prevent cross infection.
Victoria Harbour Medical Centre is an accredited travel vaccination practice. We carry a stock of the most common travel vaccines including Yellow Fever. We recommend you attend 6-8 weeks prior to intended travel to seek travel medicine and vaccination advice. Medicare does not cover the cost of travel vaccinations but this cost may be refundable in part from your private health insurer.
