Pregnancy & Postnatal Care

If you are pregnant  please book a long appointment with one of our antenatal accredited GPs to discuss what testing and referrals are required and what model of pregnancy care you wish to follow (GP shared care, midwifery care or private obstetrician care).

We participate in the Statewide Obstetric Shared Care Program which allows shared antenatal care between public hospital and accredited shared care GPs. Many of our GPs are accredited and highly experienced at providing pregnancy care.

As the waiting times for first appointments at the public hospitals can be long, if you are planning GP shared care or midwifery care ring the South Australia Pregnancy information Hotline: 1300 368 820, to book your first appointment at the hospital.

It is important to come in and see us as soon as you can (within 8 weeks of missing your period)  as some early pregnancy testing screening tests are time critical.

We also provide postnatal care for all women and their infants and recommend visits at 2 weeks postnatal and 6 weeks postnatal (the 6 week postnatal visit can be combined with your baby’s 6 week vaccinations).

Please remember to book postnatal visits for both yourself and your baby and to let reception know if you wish to book for immunisation for the baby at the 6 week postnatal visit.
