URGENT CALLS: DO NOT TEXT URGENT MATTERS
If you don’t get a response within 15 minutes call again.
If you still don’t get a response within another 15 min, please phone the Hospital Maternity 604.485.3211 ext 4387. We make every effort to ensure service, but when doing home visits North or South of town we do not always have cell service. Maternity should know how to get in touch with us and direct you to care.
WHEN TO PAGE URGENTLY?

1st Baby: Follow the “3,2,1” rule! Strong regular contractions, 3 minutes apart, for 2 Hours, contractions lasting at least 1 minute long and you can’t talk through them
If you know you are in active labour and need us now, Page Urgently!
If you suspect your bag of water (membranes) has leaked AND you are GBS positive OR you notice a greenish or foul odour (meconium)
