At Greenslopes Obstetrics and Gynaecology, we believe that the gold standard of pregnancy care is with a specialist private obstetrician.
This means that one doctor manages a pregnant woman throughout her pregnancy, birth and during her postpartum period.
All of our doctors share a similar philosophy of respecting a woman’s wishes and intervening when necessary to ensure a safe outcome for both the woman and baby.
Our model of care ensures the highest chance of a safe outcome for both the woman and baby, and provides continuous care with one specialist obstetrician.
We work closely with Greenslopes Private Hospital along with our network of hospital midwives, anaesthetists, paediatricians other medical specialists and postnatal midwives to provide our model of care.
We do not offer any collaborative care models with independent midwives as we believe this is a model of care that cannot provide the requisite level of safety.
Furthermore, our practice works closely with Greenslopes Private Hospital to monitor our outcomes through regular perinatal morbidity meetings and practice auditing.
At Greenslopes Obstetrics and Gynaecology, we also work closely with allied health professionals including women’s health physiotherapists, diabetic educators, dieticians and psychologists to provide our uniquely comprehensive model of care.
However, we do not support treatment by alternative therapists such as chiropractors and naturopaths. These therapies are not supported by evidence, they are unregulated and in some cases may worsen certain conditions.
Whilst we respect any patient’s choice to pursue a particular therapy, we do not support the use of alternative therapies.
We are happy to answer any questions about our practice philosophy.
