About Antenatal Care
Antenatal care is structured to provide safe, high quality care throughout your pregnancy. Through regular appointments the health of you and your baby is monitored and you will be offered timely information and advice. As pregnancy progress, there is ample time to plan the labour and delivery you anticipate.
Dr O’Neill is very happy for you to bring your partner to any of your appointments, however, she is very understanding that partners are not always able to attend due to work commitments. If your partner is having trouble taking time off work the most important to attend will be:
- The 12-13 week ultrasound
- The Fetal Anatomy Ultrasound at 19 weeks gestation
- Appointments during the last few weeks of pregnancy (to ensure that you’ve both had the opportunity to discuss your labour and delivery plan).
