Your First Visit​

Welcome to Greenslopes Obstetrics & Gynaecology. This page aims to provide you with all of the information you may need for your first appointment.

What to Bring

On your first visit please remember to bring the following:
  • Patient Registration Form
  • Referral Form (GP, Doctor or Physio). Your referring doctor may have sent this directly. Please contact us if you are unsure.
  • Medicare, DV or Pension card
  • Private health fund details
In addition, it is important to provide your obstetrician with any relevant medical history to ensure the optimal management of your pregnancy. Items that may be relevant include:
  • List of current medications
  • List of any allergies to pharmaceuticals or other
  • Prior X-ray, MRI or CT scans
  • Copies of pathology reports and ultrasound scans

What to Expect

During your first consultation, your obstetrician will be asking for detailed information covering your medical history and prior pregnancies, if any.

Honesty is important as it provides all of the information needed to assess and properly treat you.

At this appointment, your obstetrician may perform some physical examinations and take clinical images to complete your medical record to assist with future follow-ups.

Ask Questions

Your first visit is an exciting time, and you are encouraged to ask questions, which your obstetrician will answer to ensure you are informed.

It is easy to forget all the questions you wish to discuss. Prepare a list to ensure nothing is forgotten.

Initial Tests

During your first consultation or soon after, you will be required to have an ultrasound to help establish your baby’s due date and to check on the health of your pregnancy.

Other tests that will be required include:

  • Blood tests are done to know your blood type (A. B. AB, or O; Rh positive or Rh negative)
    immunity to German measles (rubella), and haemoglobin levels
  • After reviewing any diagnostic results, your obstetrician will advise you of the results.

Physical Examinations

Physical examinations can at first seem daunting, but all of the independent doctors working from GOG will accommodate you and help you feel supported and comfortable during this process.

Taking deep, slow breaths and relaxing will help achieve the best results.

Late Arrivals and Appointment Policy

Please read the GOG Appointment Policy if you are unwell and/or have to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
