Schedule of Visits

Even though pregnancy is a unique experience for each woman, some universal checkups and investigations will occur during the nine months. 

Below is a summary of the visits if all is going well in your pregnancy. Some women will need more visits, others will need less. In this example, the visits are shared between a GP and a Midwife; however this will vary depending on the Model of Care you choose.  

 Under Resources you will find links to useful information relevant to each visit.
