Pregnant in Perth, Now What?

Normally, the first health professional you see in your pregnancy journey is the person who confirms it: a GP. When you first discover that you’re pregnant, a preliminary discussion with a GP can guide you on the various paths of pregnancy care and birth, establish continuity of care and make access to further support from Lactation Consultants, Women’s Health Physiotherapists and Obstetricians that much easier. GPs at Baby Steps are skilled at managing all common pregnancy medical issues and can provide unbiased advice to help you choose the pregnancy path for you.
