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.

YDMG have 2 trained GP Obstetricians, Dr Tania Jones and Dr Murali Ooruthiran.

There are several options for antenatal and in hospital care. Which one is best for you will depend on your preferences and on the complexity of the pregnancy care you will require.

We provide prenatal (before pregnancy/planning pregnancy),and antenatal (during pregnancy) care.

Our local hospital midwives are involved in the antenatal and postnatal care as well.  As our obstetric providers are all heavily booked, patients should call and book their first appointment as soon as their pregnancy is confirmed.

In general we prefer to see all pregnant patients as early as possible in their pregnancy.  Shared care can also be provided by other GPs at this clinic.
