A comprehensive antenatal shared-care programme is provided to pregnant women, in collaboration with the Obstetric Department of hospitals under the Hospital Authority (HA), to monitor the whole pregnancy and delivery process. To ensure the continuity of quality care, antenatal service clustering between Maternal and Child Health Centres (MCHCs) and hospitals under the HA of the same district is provided. Pregnant women should attend the MCHC having shared antenatal care with HA hospitals.
- MCHCs only accept registration of pregnant women who will deliver in the designated shared care hospitals under the HA.
- Appointment must be made for antenatal service.
- As the procedure for registration of new cases is different among hospitals, for more information please contact the obstetric department or the corresponding MCHC by phone or in person.
- Non local expectant mothers must consult the Obstetric Department of hospitals under the Hospital Authority for their first antenatal service registration.
