Pre-pregnancy Counselling

Women with pre-existing medical disorders such as hypertension, kidney problems, diabetes, previous deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, heart problems or who are older (age >35 years) or overweight are at increased risk of developing a number of  complications during pregnancy. It can be very helpful for these women to be seen by an obstetric physician prior to pregnancy to discuss what special care in pregnancy might be required and make a plan to provide them the best care to prepare them for pregnancy and during their pregnancy. 

Dr McLintock specialises in caring for women with high risk pregnancies in conjunction with obstetric and/ or midwifery colleagues.
