Family planning Melbourne

Planning on starting a family?

Are you planning on starting a family soon, or have infant children?

We have dedicated services specifically designed to cater for every stage of a family, including:

  • From the time you decide you’d like to start a family
  • During pregnancy
  • After pregnancy
  • Child healthcare.

Family planning

From contraception to fertility and pregnancy advice, our GPs have got your family planning needs covered. See a female or male GP – it’s your choice.

Pre-conception health check

This health screening is designed for women to determine their readiness to conceive and identify any potential health risk issues.

Antenatal shared care

This is a popular choice for healthy women with a normal pregnancy. It will allow most of your pregnancy care to be managed by one of our accredited antenatal care GPs.

We’re associated with the following hospitals:

  • The Womens (Royal Womens Hospital)
  • Mercy Hospital for Women
  • Northern Hospital
  • Sunshine Hospital.

For more information speak to your GP or contact the shared care coordinator at the above hospitals.

Postnatal care

We offer mother-centric postnatal care services to both the mother and newborn during the first six weeks after delivery of the child. This may include:

  • Routine clinical examination and observation of the mother and baby
  • Routine baby screening to detect potential disorders
  • Support for infant feeding
  • Ongoing provision of information and support.

Baby and child health checks

These checks allow for babies and young children to be routinely evaluated by our GPs to monitor their health, growth and development.

Paediatrics

Did you know we have in-house consulting paediatricians?

A paediatrician is a medical doctor with special training and skills in the diseases and illnesses that affect babies and children, and also in how babies, children and teenagers grow and develop.

Your child might see a paediatrician if your GP wants a specialist opinion about your child’s health and development, or thinks your child needs specialised care and treatment.

We’re here for you and your family

We’re here to take care of the health needs of you and your family. So if you have any questions at all, please chat to one of our friendly GPs.
