Prenatal Care & Newborns



We have family physicians who practice low risk obstetrics at St. Joseph’s Health Centre. For more information, click here 

Our physicians can also provide prenatal care and/or referrals to Obstetricians. Book an appointment here 



Before you leave the hospital, you will receive discharge papers and information on the first check-up, which is usually within 2-3 days of leaving the hospital. 

Please note we require at least one parent to be a current patient of Citrus to register your newborn baby with one of our physicians. Click here to check availability for a new family doctor.

If you already have one parent rostered, that family physician will automatically accept your newborn into their practice.
