Confirmation of your pregnancy can begin with your family physician. Physicians who offer obstetric services, care for low risk mothers and their babies throughout pregnancy, delivery, and into well-child checkups. Good health for mother and baby starts before pregnancy, and family physicians are specialized in building and sustaining relationships with women and their families across the lifespan. However not all family physicians in BC provide maternity care.
When complications develop (such as the need for caesarean birth), family doctors consult and can refer to obstetricians, pediatricians and other specialists.
All physician services are covered by the BC Medical Serives Plan.
