Your first visit should occur early in the pregnancy to determine if there are any risks associated with your pregnancy and also to ensure there is time to manage anything that may arise. Your GP will discuss with you the best timing of the first visit but it is usually around the 8-12 week mark, if you have no other risks.
During the pregnancy you will visit Drew monthly until 28 weeks, fortnightly until 36 weeks and then weekly until delivery. This may vary depending on the needs of the individual.
Drew is very passionate about his patients care and this does not stop at the delivery of the baby. For as long as you need Drew’s assistance postnatally he is there for his patients.

She will also review any wounds you have and contact me with any concerns. . Michelle will also keep in contact with you via email or text to continue to help you in any way we can.
