You’ve found out you’re pregnant, what’s next?
Finding out you’re pregnant can be an exciting and emotional time. You may feel excited, unsure or overwhelmed and you may have many questions such as;
- What do I do now?
- What kind of care do I need when I’m pregnant?
- Where can I have my baby?
- What tests and ultrasounds do I need to have?
First you will need to visit your GP to discuss your pregnancy, care and birthing options. Your doctor will arrange initial blood tests and provide recommendations and referrals for ultrasounds and other tests you may need. Regardless of your choice of antenatal care, your GP will continue to provide your general health care throughout your pregnancy.
