Background: Antenatal shared care (ANSC) is a model of care in Australia whereby pregnant women are managed by their general practitioner (GP) and an obstetrician at a public antenatal clinic throughout the pregnancy. The aim of this study was to assess pregnant women's satisfaction with the ANSC program and the adequacy of advice provided to pregnant women. Methods: Women participating in ANSC in the Illawarra region of NSW were invited to complete a satisfaction survey, which included questions on relevant topics discussed with their GP. Results: Most women reported being highly satisfied with the ANSC service. Over half of the women had not received any information about breastfeeding and nutritional supplementation of iodine.
