Finding out you’re pregnant can be one of the most exciting times of your life but you may find yourself asking , what do I need to do next?

A visit to your GP is a good place to start. For medicare purposes you will need a referral for your first appointment and your GP will be able to provide you with this. Your first visit is ideally between weeks 8-10 of your pregnancy, where Dr Bradbury will perform an ultrasound and also discuss first trimester testing which can be performed. After your first visit,  your appointment schedule is likely to follow the following schedule:

  • 15weeks
  • 20 weeks
  • 24 weeks
  • 28 weeks
  • 31 weeks
  • 34 weeks
  • 36 weeks
  • 37 weeks
  • 38 weeks
  • 39 weeks
  • 40 weeks
  • 6-8 weeks postnatal
