Obstetric Shared Care
As we are a shared care model you will not be able to request a particular obstetrician for your birth. Our specialists will work on an on-call, rotational roster for all Sunshine Obstetric patient births. Meet our obstetricians.
You may have additional out of pocket costs for hospital and other specialist services such as anaesthetics and paediatricians. However our specialist obstetricians have agreements with most private health funds and will offer Sunshine Obstetric patients a no gap cover for births, this is including caesarean sections. (Please let our admin team know which health fund you are with to determine if there is any additional costs for birthing with our specialists). Please contact you health fund directly to discuss additionally out of pocket costs for hospital admissions and other specialist fees.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact our friendly admin team - Contact Us.
