Riley Park Maternity Clinic

An icon with a newspaper shape and the word news on it

Calgary Foothills Primary Care Network has announced the transition of management of low-risk maternity care to the Riley Park Maternity Clinic’s physicians.

That means the doctors are going to run and oversee the clinic’s daily operations, like many family doctor practices around Alberta.

Patient care will not be affected. Much of the change will be behind the scenes and patients can continue to see the doctors and nurses at the Riley Park Maternity Clinic and deliver at the Foothills Medical Centre.

Supporting your journey to becoming a parent.

Trying to find the right place to guide you through pregnancy? Wanting to make sure you have support for all the steps along the way, from early pregnancy to labour and delivery right through to post-partum care, breastfeeding and parenting?

Riley Park Maternity Clinic provides care for eight months of pregnancy and beyond, all in one place — and all for free.

Led by family doctors with expertise in low-risk obstetrics, our team-based care also includes registered nurses, a mental health specialist and social worker — all skilled in supporting parents-to-be.

And once you’ve welcomed your baby, we can also help with breastfeeding, circumcision and other needs of new families.

Timeline of care

Below is the typical pregnancy journey, illustrated week-by-week, at our clinic.

A graphic of the journey of care expecting parents can anticipate at the maternity clinic, broken down into weeks.

Your first appointment

During your first visit, we will take a full medical history, review any tests you’ve had done and arrange further tests as required. We will do a physical examination appropriate to your history and stage of pregnancy. Our staff will provide an orientation to our clinic and explain how our call group works. This appointment usually runs 1-1.5 hours in length.

Prenatal education

These free interactive classes are one hour, every two weeks and led by a doctor from our clinic.

We provide our parents-to-be prenatal education on:

  • nutrition, exercise and common discomforts in pregnancy
  • stages of labour and comfort measures in labour
  • labour interventions and complications
  • mental health, self-care, social supports and preparing for parenthood
  • post-partum care
  • infant feeding, sleep and development
  • newborn care

These virtual sessions start in your second trimester through until the end of your due month. You will be grouped with other women due around the same time. Your support person is also welcome to attend.

Please note: all sessions — except breastfeeding education — will be paused between July and fall 2024
