Your first antenatal consultation will normally be scheduled at between 8 – 10 weeks of pregnancy. This 45 minute appointment provides the opportunity for us to take a full medical history and discuss your questions and concerns. An ultrasound may be performed at this consultation.
As we are private obstetricians, it is important that you obtain a referral prior to your first appointment. This referral can be provided by a GP or a specialist, however please be aware that specialist referrals are only valid for a 3 month period.
There is no ‘standard’ schedule of antenatal visits for our patients. Each care plan is individualised, taking into consideration any pre-existing conditions, concerns that may develop during the pregnancy, and – most importantly – your preferences. We will always see you as often as you need to be seen. We are flexible regarding appointment times, and can accommodate consultations in the evenings and on weekends as required.

Our practice staff will be happy to speak to you in detail about the fee schedule for obstetric care and management. We do recommend that you ensure that you (and your partner) are registered for participation in the Medicare Safety Net scheme.
