Prenatal Home Care Program

The Prenatal Home Care Program (PHC)

The Prenatal Home Care Program (PHC) is a safe alternative to hospital care for women experiencing complications of pregnancy.  The PHC will focus specifically on the following complications; high blood pressure, preterm labour, and premature preterm rupture of membranes (PPROM). To be eligible for this service you need to meet specific criteria including: a referral by a health care practitioner who has admitting privileges at the Royal University Hospital for the Antepartum Unit; and live or have temporary accommodation within 30 minutes of the Royal University Hospital.

Our goal is for a safe pregnancy and healthy outcome for you and your baby, with this in mind the PHC nurses have extensive training and many years of experience.
