I'm Pregnant! Now What?
First of all - Congratulations! What a wonderfully exciting, and perhaps scary time for you. This early part of pregnancy can be such a roller coaster of emotions.
One of the challenges of early pregnancy is there difficult knowing what the next step is. Most health professionals don't want to start regular prenatal visits until closer to 16 weeks. Lots of people may have opinions, but are they relevant to you and your plans? Are those options available in our region?
Do I talk to my GP?
Do I go public or private? Are there private midwives available?
Do I need to see an obstetrician if I"m considered low risk?
How do I stay low risk?
What are my options after a previous caesarean? Can I have a vaginal birth this time around?
What can I do about this nausea?
What are all these tests?
What am I supposed to be eating?
What options are there available in FNQ?
Knowing your options and having a "game plan" in mind from early pregnancy can have such a huge positive impact on your birthing journey.

"Lynda's knowledge of the entire birth process and her readiness to provide any information requested was great. I never felt she swayed me in a particular direction or passed her own judgements on particular aspects of the birth process, but rather provided me with the resources to make my own choices in my own time."
