Welcome To Our Victoria Midwifery Clinic.

Victoria Midwifery Care

PRENATAL APPOINTMENTS

Prenatal appointments at Andrea's clinic occur monthly until the third trimester, then every 2-3 weeks until the last month, then weekly until delivery. Appointments are approximately 30 - 45 minutes and include physical assessment of mother and baby (blood pressure, urinalysis, fetal heart rate, belly check, etc). During prenatal visits, we will discuss many relevant topics regarding your pregnancy, the birth, and newborn care.

LABOUR AND BIRTH

When you are in labour, Andrea will be with you throughout your labour and birth regardless of whether you choose home or hospital. Andrea will regularly monitor you and your baby’s well-being and will deliver your baby. If any complications arise, we work as part of the integrated medical team and continue to provide support.

After the baby is born

Midwives provide full care to clients and their babies until 6 weeks after the birth. You can expect to be visited by a midwife several times after your baby is born. Generally you will be visited at your home each day for the first 2 or 3 days, with visits gradually decreasing over the next few weeks. You can expect to receive 6 to 8 visits (at home and in clinic) in total, finishing at 6-7 weeks after the baby is born, with the final visit in the clinic.
