Obstetrics Care

Obstetrics Doctors

We provide prenatal (before pregnancy/planning pregnancy), antenatal (during pregnancy), intrapartum (delivery at Yarrawonga hospital) and post natal care.

We participate in shared care (where delivery is not in Yarrawonga – for example at Wangaratta).

We currently have 2 doctors who perform intrapartum care – Dr Tania Jones and Dr Murali Ooruthiran. Weekends are shared with the other clinic – Dr Clyde Ronan. At times where a GP obstetrician is not available women may need to give birth in Wangaratta coming back to Yarrawonga after birth has occurred. Our local hospital midwives are involved in the antenatal and postnatal care as well.

Planning pregnancy

Deciding to fall pregnant is a very important time, and with good planning you can optimise your health for you and your baby.

It is important to ensure your pap smear is up to date, great to check if your rubella is immune, that you are taking folic acid and iodine supplements, that you have enough Vitamin D in your system. It is a great time to reflect on your overall health, weight, blood pressure, exercise, stopping smoking and alcohol. Seeing your GP at this time is a very valuable thing to do.

Clinic standard opening hours are: - Monday - Thursday
- Friday
- Saturday & Sunday
