Did you know that obstetricians can also give family planning advice?
Obstetricians like Dr Larwood provide friendly and professional care to help plan your future and achieve the best possible outcome for your pregnancy.
When it comes to planning for pregnancy or adjusting to the surprise of an unplanned pregnancy, you probably have a never-ending list of questions. But your obstetrician can help answer your questions and help you adjust to your future as parents.
So, let’s take a look at the health care and family planning services that obstetricians offer.
Supportive Environment & Expert Care
If you’re planning to start a family, it’s a good idea to visit your healthcare professional for a health check and advice before you get pregnant or soon after falling pregnant.
Obstetricians can provide expert skills for women’s health. They can also provide up to date, relevant information and knowledge so you can understand everything that is occurring during your pregnancy and prepare for parenthood.
Your obstetrician will provide a private, supportive, and safe environment where you can feel comfortable discussing your pregnancy. They will also support you and help you start your journey towards starting your family in the safest and most enjoyable way.
Enjoy Your Journey to Parenthood
Your health care provider can also provide one-on-one continuous care throughout your pregnancy, from fertility, to conception to birth and even after.
Once you successfully conceive you can continue to visit your obstetrician regularly for check- ups, advice and support throughout your pregnancy. As part of your maternity care, you will also be able to have an ultrasound of your baby performed during each visit so you can see their constant progression and growth.
During your pregnancy, you and your obstetrician will have many conversations and make many decisions about your pregnancy and birth plan. Many factors can impact your pregnancy and birth plan and they will need to be discussed thoroughly and then individually tailored to you.
Many obstetricians will also offer birthing services through a public or private hospital. Dr. Kelvin for example offers birthing through the Buderim Private Hospital.
After you’ve welcomed your bundle of joy into the world you will be able to schedule a follow-up appointment with your obstetrician to discuss your child’s growth and development and get any extra advice on things like breastfeeding, and adjusting to parenthood.
Dr. Kelvin Larwood specialises in obstetrics, gynaecology, and fertility. He has a private clinic on the Sunshine Coast in Buderim, and is dedicated to helping hopeful couples transition smoothly into parenthood and give them and their babies the best opportunity at being healthy.
