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.

Your GP will refer you to Muswellbrook Hospital Maternity unit to arrange a Booking-in visit. 

This visit will be attended by a midwife at Muswellbrook Maternity and usually occurs before the 20th week of your pregnancy.
