Is Mom Care Docs as safe as an obstetrician?
Will I always have the same doctor?
Mom Care Docs is a group practice. If you prefer to stick with the same physician or a smaller group of doctors, this can be accommodated. Each doctor works on a particular day of the week, so if you develop a good relationship with the physician you saw on your first visit you can see that doctor for most visits by booking your appointments on the same day.
We have regular group meetings and practice following the same guidelines, so although we may have different personalities, we all practice obstetrics in the same way.
Once it is time to deliver your baby, the Mom Care Docs’ doctor-on-call will be with you at the Lois Hole Hospital for Women, Royal Alexandra Hospital. All the Mom Care Docs’ doctors work in rotating shifts at the hospital.

How long can I expect to be at my clinic appointments?
The first and second visits usually take about 30 minutes to complete, as we take a detailed medical history, do a physical examination and provide you with lots of information to keep your pregnancy safe and healthy. After this, your visits usually take 10-15 minutes.
As we are a group practice, we have a dedicated doctor-on-call each day for deliveries, so the clinic doctor does not have to leave to attend patients in the hospital.
