Antenatal Care

Antenatal care is designed to ensure the well-being of both the expectant mother and her unborn child. This includes regular health check-ups, diagnostic screenings, nutritional advice, and mental health support. My Clinic Group strives to promote a healthy pregnancy, minimise complications, and prepare parents-to-be for childbirth, thereby enhancing the prospect of a safe delivery and a healthy baby.

What to Expect During an Antenatal Appointment

During an antenatal appointment, you’ll experience an environment of comfort and care.

  1. At the beginning of the appointment, you’ll receive a thorough health assessment, which may include blood pressure checks, weight monitoring and urine analysis to monitor the health of both mother and baby.
  2. At the appropriate points during the pregnancy, you will be referred for an ultrasound scan to determine the baby’s growth and development.
  3. Nutritional advice is also discussed, tailored to the mother’s unique needs and preferences.
  4. Mental health is equally prioritised, with assessments made for any signs of stress or antenatal depression.

Questions are encouraged throughout the process to ensure you’re well educated on birth preparation and potential pregnancy complications.
