Antenatal Home Care

The Antenatal Home Care Program is a community based, safe alternative to hospital care for women experiencing one of the following complications of pregnancy: high blood pressure, preterm labour, premature preterm rupture of membranes (PPROM) or diabetes. Established in 1985 and expanded in November 1991, the program was the first of its kind in Canada and the model from which many other Canadian programs have been developed.

On October 1, 2011, the Antenatal Home Care Program (AHCP) began providing blood pressure follow-up, during the post-partum period, to women who were on the AHCP for management of a hypertensive condition during pregnancy.
