Preparing for your Pregnancy
When preparing for this most exciting time in every woman’s life, our mission at North Eastern is to ensure that every woman is in the very best, healthiest and happiest shape in every way. This includes frequent meetings, talking, listening and always offering our professional best answers for any of the questions you may encounter during your specific pregnancy. For women with some significant medical history, then we will prioritize the best management of your particulars prior to your big day.
Care during your Pregnancy
During your pregnancy we will typically schedule a minimum of 10 visits devoted to your care. Rapidly developing babies, however, often ignore normal working hours, so I remain on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to discuss any and all concerns. On weekends I’ll share professional responsibilities with 2 additional obstetricians with similar birth philosophies as my own. We look forward to meeting with you, and caring for you, whenever your pregnancy demands.
My professional priority is to assist, encourage and promote a happy healthy mum, and to help you introduce your happy healthy baby to your world. Our second team priority is for you to maintain the vaginal delivery option. Many women, of course, prefer to retain the option of an elective caesarean section, and we are always open to this option. During your labour I also trust that my duty is one of a trained, experienced observer with a generally hands-off approach, unless or until the medical situation calls for direct intervention.
Your Postnatal Care
The postnatal care period is typically the time from birth, to the first 6 weeks. With our preferred option of vaginal birth, new Mum’s can expect to spend between 4 – 5 days in hospital (typically 6 days after a caesarean). Becoming a parent is one of the most challenging periods of any woman’s life, and we’re proud to say that our midwives at North Eastern Hospital provide among the very best postnatal care in the state
