How We Can Help
Not everyone has a chance to talk to an obstetrician prior to pregnancy, but if able, then once you have decided to try for a pregnancy, a visit to the doctors at Bayside can assist you in optimising your fertility and lifestyle to ensure the healthiest start to your pregnancy possible. There are many things we can check prior to a pregnancy, which can especially have an impact on the early stages, and offer advice and treatment to improve your outcomes.
In particular we would be keen to discuss any medical conditions that you or your partner may have, and how we can optimise your health, including checking any medications you are taking that may have an impact on your baby and pregnancy care.
Some women have factors in their medical, family or previous obstetric history that can increase their chances of having a complication during pregnancy. It is our aim to achieve a healthy mother and baby in every pregnancy, but sometimes we may need to tailor your obstetric care in order to reduce or manage complications that can occur.
We are a group of obstetricians who help their women as a team, and as such we are able to offer you a collective level of expertise, as well as the flexibility to continue to see our midwives on some of your visits in order to ensure continuity of care.
Furthermore we have access to other specialists who can assist in certain areas should you require them. We also have the ability to deliver your baby at Mater Mothers South Brisbane in order to access higher levels of maternity and neonatal care.
We are happy and experienced in the provision of maternity care to women with the following issues -
• Vaginal Birth After Caesarean Section (VBAC)
• Recurrent miscarriages
• Multiple pregnancies (twins, triplets…)
• Previous traumatic pregnancy or birthing experiences
• Hypertension/Raised blood pressure - including blood pressure problems prior to pregnancy, developing during pregnancy or history of previous pre-eclampsia/HELLP syndrome
• Thyroid conditions
• Diabetes mellitus (type 1 or 2)
• History of diabetes during pregnancy or gestational diabetes
• Inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease)
• Autoimmune diseases (lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, connective tissue disorders)
• Previous poor obstetric history
• IVF pregnancies
• Previous miscarriages or stillbirths, including those secondary to chromosomal/genetic problems or structural malformations
Classifying your pregnancy as low risk simply means that there is nothing in your medical or family history that increases your chance of complications in pregnancy. It also means that any of your previous pregnancies have been uncomplicated.
As such you can have regular visits with both the obstetricians and the midwives, ensuring that your health and that of your baby continues as it should. During your visits we will have many opportunities to discuss your personal pregnancy and birthing wishes with the team, allowing you choices and the reassurances that we will endeavour to fulfil your expectations.

It is not normal to have a heavy, dragging sensation or a 'lump' down below. There are now both surgical and non-surgical techniques that are extremely successful at restoring pelvic floor function.
