Know My Midwife Program (KMM)

Know your midwife - about the program

The Know My Midwife program gives mums-to-be the very best in Midwifery Continuity-of-Care through the coordination of regular antenatal & postnatal appointments with our highly experienced Midwives and your chosen Obstetrician.

This gives you the opportunity to form meaningful and trusted relationships with those who will be with you on your path to motherhood.

How does the Know My Midwife Program work?

Once we have received a referral from your Obstetrician or you complete the enquiry below, Glengarry Private Hospital will make contact with you to arrange an antenatal appointment.

The Midwife and your Obstetrician will share your care. They both will provide you and your loved ones with individual care and follow you through your journey.
