Dr Larwood provides friendly and professional one-on-one care to help you achieve the best possible outcome for your pregnancy. Whether high or low risk, each woman and pregnancy is unique and I provide continuity of care from your first appointment to the birth of your baby and postnatally. Individualised care, information and knowledge enable good decisions and provides the best opportunity for a safe pregnancy and birth.
Having a baby and starting a family is one of the most important and special times of your life. It is a special privilege to care for women during this time.
My aim is to provide a supportive, caring and safe environment with one-on-one care that is individualised and focused on a healthy mother and baby. Not only do I provide expert clinical skills in caring for your pregnancy and birth but also provide you with up to date, relevant information and knowledge that you can use to make informed and good decisions about your care. You can be confident you are in safe hands.
I have a special interest in Pelvic Floor Dysfunction which includes prolapse (vaginal walls and cervix fall down and sometimes to the outside of the vagina), urinary and faecal incontinence. Unfortunately this is a common condition that can have a significant impact on a women’s quality of life and is often not discussed, understood or taken into consideration during a pregnancy and birth. I believe it is important for women to be aware of this condition, understand what their individual risks might be so they can make informed decisions about their care.
