We perform prenatal exams up to the third trimester and then transfer your care to a health practitioner of your choice: obstetrician, family physician or mid-wife. If you are newly pregnant, please call our office to arrange a visit within 1-2 weeks as there are early screening tests that are available and need to be booked early (including dating ultrasound and bloodwork).
We provide routine baby care at the recommended intervals (1 wk, 1 month, 2, 4, 6, 12, and 18 months). We do not perform the early childhood immunizations and can direct you to the vaccination clinic at your closest community health care centre. We also do routine pediatric exams (recommended yearly at ages 2, 3, and 4 prior to entering kindergarten).
You can now enroll your baby in the Medical Services Plan through the online birth registration service by the BC Vital Statistics Agency at the following link. You must do this as soon as possible after birth to ensure your baby has medical coverage:
