Your First Visit

During your first visit with Dr Watson, a detailed history will be taken and physical examination performed. Dr Watson will often perform a pelvic ultrasound to confirm how far you are into your pregnancy. There will be a careful discussion of your past obstetric experiences.

It is helpful if you have the following:

  • A referral from your General Practitioner;
  • The results of any previous scans, blood tests and pap smears.

Antenatal Tests

  • Booking routine tests include haemoblobin, kidney and liver function, blood group, rubella, chicken pox and blood-bourne infections
  • Screening for Down Syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities will be discussed.
  • An early anatomy scan at 13 weeks is optional
  • A detailed anatomy scan of the foetus and placenta is recommended at 19 weeks.

Pregnancy planning

The first visit is a good opportunity to discuss diet, exercise, career  plans and birth expectations. You will often meet our practice midwives Vanessa and Kris who are also available for phone advice if neccessary.
