FURTHER EXCELLING IN COMPLETE CARE FOR WOMEN

ADELAIDE OBSTETRICS NOW OFFERS AN IN-HOUSE LACTATION CONSULTANT!

We are pleased to announce that Mandy White is joining the team as a Private Midwife.

 

She is able to provide education and support during your pregnancy as well as personalised postnatal care either at home or here in the clinic.

 

She has a wealth of experience not only in pregnancy care but as a certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and Eligible Midwife (meaning she can order tests and prescribe medication).

 

All visits are eligible for a Medicare rebate and in some cases, your private health extras cover as well.

PREGNANCY

You will be offered an education appointment at around 36 weeks.

 

This is around 60-90 minutes and can cover breastfeeding education, sibling adjustment, pregnancy anxieties and many more topics.

 

It is a time to sit down and review what you want and where you feel more knowledge would be helpful. At this visit, your blood pressure and baby’s heartbeat are also checked.

 

You can also get a fantastic breastfeeding starter pack at this appointment for a small price. Medicare will cover the majority of the fee for this visit.

POSTNATAL

After you leave the hospital, Mandy can visit you at home or in the clinic for the first six weeks.

 

These visits can be weekly or as often as needed. These visits provide assistance with feeding problems, baby review including weight check and a postnatal mother check.

 

Mandy is also available to answer any questions in between appointments via her mobile.

 

Medicare covers the postnatal visits and in some cases, your private health extras may contribute however there will be a gap.

 

Appointments are claimable through Medicare.
