Our service also runs the following clinics to support you through your pregnancy:
You will be encouraged to start attending clinics and other WANDAS appointments in the first trimester (first 12 weeks) of your pregnancy. We will provide you with access to routine scans and tests, social support, psychiatric and midwifery support, parent education, advice about diet and referrals to other services which may be suitable to you.
During your pregnancy, we will assist you to access appropriate services to support you following the birth of your baby. You will be offered an appointment check-up after you have had your baby. You may also attend contraception and family planning services.
Routine follow-up for your baby includes an appointment at 2 weeks and continues up to 3 months of age. This may vary according to your baby's individual requirements. You may be referred to a paediatrician at Princess Margret Hospital should your baby require follow-up appointments.
You can contact the service directly when you discover you are pregnant, or be referred by your GP, health care worker or community service provider.
