At around 16 weeks you will need to book your first appointment with the antenatal clinic. You will need a referral from your GP for this clinic. This appointment will usually take 1 hour. The midwife will gather all the information needed to assist you through the rest of your pregnancy and birth.
Visits to the antenatal clinic occur at around 20, 28, 36, 40 and 41 weeks; the other ante natal visits will be with your GP. Please make sure you talk to your GP and get copies of any test results(or for them) to be sent to the hospital. The antenatal clinic will send results to your GP so both care providers have all the information.
The hospital Antenatal Clinic is free and open every Tuesday (except public holidays) and visits are strictly by appointment only. If you are unable to make your appointment, please contact the clinic (03) 57225009
