​Now that you are pregnant

Your care begins with your General Practitioner (GP), by confirming your pregnancy, taking a comprehensive health and medical history, ordering your blood tests and an obstetric ultrasound.

Care for your pregnancy in Inverell will be undertaken by one of two GP Obstetricians and they will give you a referral letter to contact the maternity unit for a booking in appointment at the hospital. 

Copies of your blood test results and scan reports will also be sent through to the hospital. The Booking-in visit will be attended by a midwife at the hospital and usually occurs before the 22nd week of your pregnancy. Where you have your pregnancy care will depend on your general health and your previous birth experience.
