Your Choice Midwives

Your Pregnancy

Your first visit with your midwife is an opportunity to get to know one another in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Your midwife will explain how the midwives in the practice cooperate with one another with respect to back up, regular time off and annual leave. You can expect to meet your back up midwife at some time during your pregnancy either at your scheduled antenatal appointment or by attending one of our two monthly "Meet the Midwife" mornings. Ask your midwife for details of dates and times.

During your first visit a full midwifery assessment will be carried out and entered into your maternity notes. These notes will remain with you throughout your pregnancy care. At each visit throughout your pregnancy, your midwife will be checking your urine, blood pressure, the growth of your baby and your general well-being. We will endeavour to answer any questions that you may have.

Your midwife may offer you a referral to an allied health professional such as

  • Dietician
  • Physiotherapist
  • Medical physician
  • Obstetrician
  • Radiologist
  • Lactation consultant
  • Social worker

Your midwife will provide you with a list of parenting education providers. You will be urged to book your parenting education classes early in your pregnancy as spaces with some providers are limited.
