Antenatal Visits - 10 to 20 weeks

Ultrasound image of babyAll women planning to birth at The Canberra Hospital are asked to attend a pre-admission visit appointment at around 12 - 16 weeks of pregnancy.

This appointment with a midwife lasts for about 1 hour.

The midwife takes a full health history as well as providing pregnancy information, answering questions and booking education sessions as required.

Please bring copies of any blood tests and ultrasounds to this appointment.

Your GP or the midwife will give you your maternity record booklet at this time. It is important to bring this booklet with you to every pregnancy visit and when you come to have your baby.
