Choosing the right care

In the beginning of your pregnancy, you will be faced with lots of new decisions to make. Choosing the right care provider for you and your baby is going to be one of the most important decisions to make.

While there are many different options to choose from, both in the private and public health system, it is important in any scenario that you are comfortable with your choice. Finding a care provider that can give you the appropiate help and care may involve some research, for example if you are choosing an obstetrician you may want to ask your GP or preferred hospital for their reccomendations.

If this is a subsequent pregnancy after a loss, it is important to find the right care provider that understands your needs as a bereaved parent. Whether that may be requesting extra scans or monitoring any serious concerns contributed to your previous loss. It is important to voice any of your concerns at the beginning of your care, to ensure you have a team you can trust.

Make an appointment with your GP if you are still unsure about what level of care you should get, or for a list of recommended clinicians. 

Alternatively, visit the Health Direct website to search clinicians in your area.
