Antenatal care is offered following confirmation of pregnancy with a referral from your GP or you can self refer. The highly experienced midwives at PPC can order all pregnancy related tests and ultrasound scans and organise a referral to book into your local hospital. If you would like to continue seeing your GP through your pregnancy, a shared care option is available.
The midwives at PPC offer ample opportunity at every appointment to discuss and questions or concerns you may have throughout your pregnancy. They offer continued support and guidance throughout to ensure you feel informed on all aspects of your maternity care.
For any complications that may arise during your pregnancy, we can offer access to a specialist GP who will determine whether transfer to hospital care is indicated.
All appointments are 100% bulk billed in our welcoming centre.
Upon hospital discharge, your care will be transferred back to the midwives at PPC. Home visits will then be arranged at a mutually convenient time from the day after you return home. All routine cares (including baby weights, newborn screening, wound/perineal care) will be attended by our highly experienced midwives.
For up to a week after birth, we will offer 100% bulk billed home appointments. Continued care and support would then be offered in our welcoming centre until your baby is 6 weeks old. This service is 100% bulk billed.
The midwives at PPC will offer support and advice throughout your transition into parenthood.
If you experience difficulties with breastfeeding your baby, the lactation consultant can offer specialist support as part of your bulk billed postnatal care.
Breastfeeding issues can arise at any point in your breastfeeding journey.
