Your Pregnancy Journey
Our practice is a friendly space, with your comfort and well-being being our priority. Over the course of your pregnancy you will get to know Dr Stephen Elgey and his team very well. We are here to ensure that you receive exceptional antenatal care, both medically and administratively.
Your Initial Consultation
Dr Elgey recommends booking your initial consultation between 7 and 9 weeks of pregnancy. During this appointment Dr Elgey will discuss your pre-pregnancy history, perform a viability scan and plan the management of your pregnancy. You may have many questions about what to expect throughout your journey and your initial consultation is a great time to have these answered. Our team is also available over the phone and email to answer questions about appointment scheduling, antenatal classes and parenting resources.
Our Consultation Schedule
We recommended booking your first consultation between 7 and 9 weeks of pregnancy. During your first and second trimester we will schedule you for monthly appointments. At 28 weeks you will begin your fortnightly appointments and as of 36 weeks you will see Dr Elgey weekly until baby's arrival.
Your appointment schedule may vary throughout your pregnancy and you may find that you require more frequent appointments for underlying conditions or changes to yours or baby's health. Conditions such as gestational diabetes, intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and high blood pressure all require closer monitoring and we ensure that you will be seen and monitored accordingly.
Our antenatal clinic hours are 9am – 4:30pm Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursday. On Friday are clinic is open until 3:30pm.
