Pregnancy & Childbirth Health Services

Pregnancy is a complex phenomenon involving many factors – it’s not just about having sex. From ovulation, insemination and conception, and implanting of the growing embryo into the uterus, the pathway to successful pregnancy requires many factors to line up just right.

Women having their babies in the Northern Sydney Local Health district can choose between antenatal clinics, shared antenatal care and midwife group delivery. Your GP can advise you which options are suitable for you. Whichever option is chosen it is important to book in at your local hospital, as soon as the pregnancy is confirmed, for the birth of your baby.

Seeking health advice from a health professional in helping you prepare for getting pregnant and your options when it comes to childbirth may assist.
