Family Practice Maternity Service

The Family Practice Maternity Service (FPMS) is a group of dedicated family doctors who are passionate about providing maternity care.  We attend births at BC Women's Hospital.

We have joined together to offer our skills and services to childbearing women and their families.  Our many years of experience and our commitment to excellence mean that our patients recieve personalized, high quality care.

We believe in teamwork, both with each other and with our patients.  Our shared philosophy and practice ensure consistency.

We provide care during:

  • Pregnancy
  • Birth
  • The hospital stay after the birth for mom and baby
  • The period up to 6 weeks after the birth

In addition:

  • We offer Connecting Pregnancy group prenatal care
  • We provide maternity care and support for women who have had a previous caesarean section
  • We provide maternity care for pregnant women who are struggling with addictions
  • We make referrals to specialists when needed
  • We coordinate care from all members of the FPMS team as needed
  • We assist the transition back to the community family doctor
  • If a woman does not have a family doctor, we help her find one
