Our ServicesWomens health specialists
Maternal health is paramount in the lead up into pregnancy, for birth and beyond. Our team are experts in managing complex medical problems in and around pregnancy.
The fetus is what it is all about. Watching a tiny embryo grow to a full term baby is incredible and we feel very privileged to be apart of the journey. We provide a range of services from routine ultrasounds, advanced pregnancy screening to tertiary level consultation.
Ultrasound is an important tool to assist your health care provider to manage pregnancy and diagnose important gynaecological problems that can impact on your quality of life.
What to bring and how to prepare for your ultrasound
What information do I need to bring?
- If you have had previous ultrasounds, CT scans or MRI of the pelvis, you can bring the images or the report with you.
- We will ask you about your last menstrual period, so if you have this on hand before the ultrasound.
How do I prepare for my ultrasound?
- Most of the time you need a full bladder so that we can image the cervix and lower uterus. Once we have taken those images, we will offer you the opportunity to empty your bladder.
- The best way to achieve a full bladder without being too uncomfortable, is to empty your bladder ONE hour before the ultrasound. Then drink approximately 500mls of water in the hour leading up to the scan. Try not to empty your bladder again before the scan.

The medicare rebate for Obstetric and Gynaecology ultrasound has not changed over time and does not cover the cost of a high quality service with skilled sonographers, doctors and state of the art ultrasound technology. That is why there is a private cost for our service, and you will receive a portion of this back from medicare. Feel free to contact our staff for further information.
