Kindred is home to two specialist obstetricians who provide care before, during and after birth. Kindred’s obstetricians practice similarly to traditional obstetric practice with the added advantage of midwifery support.
The doctors at Kindred are here to support each family during their journey. We are particularly experienced in caring for women with complex pregnancies, those who have had complications in previous pregnancies, or who have medical conditions.
Obstetric care allows you to have a specialist obstetrician caring for you throughout pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. During this time, you can also have input from Kindred midwives for education, consultations, visits in hospital, and in-home visits after birth.
Continuity of care with your obstetrician is a priority at Kindred. Occasionally your obstetrician may not be available in which case another Kindred obstetrician will always be on hand, and it is possible and encouraged to meet both of the obstetricians at Kindred prior to the birth. Kindred obstetricians all work collaboratively, and in all circumstances will be familiar with your situation and preferences.
As part of the Kindred family, you will have access to the following services:
- 24-hour on-call access to an obstetrician
- regular routine check-ups
- care from your obstetrician throughout labour and birth
- daily visits while in hospital after the birth
- comprehensive home postnatal visits
- ongoing support into parenthood with feeding clinics, self-service baby weigh facilities and parents’ groups.
Kindred obstetric patients have a routine appointment with a Kindred midwife during the pregnancy and will also be seen by the midwife during their postnatal admission for education and to plan home postnatal visits.
Midwifery care during birth is provided by the staff of the Mater Mother’s Hospital.
All care during pregnancy and the postnatal period attracts a Medicare rebate.
