Referrals to Family Doctors

We welcome referrals from community physicians for patients that live in the City of Vancouver. To refer a patient for maternity care, please select the maternity care doctor of your choice using the Find A Doctor page. Please fax a referral form along with all relevant pregnancy information to the office (ultrasound, blood work, pap test).

The doctor’s office will contact your patient with the date and time of appointment. Alternatively, please have your patient call the doctor’s office for an appointment.

Physician Resources for Maternity Care

These below reference documents provide an overview of important questions, tests and topics to cover in prenatal and postpartum care with your patients. If you are providing early pregnancy care for your patients prior to referral, our prenatal care checklist is very important.

Pathways can act as a referral resource for your patients, as well as a great information database with over 150 Obstetric and Maternity Care resources, organized by trimesters, postpartum and newborn care. For more information about Pathways contact the Division at 604-569-2010 or
