Caring for kids begins with maternity care. In this article, we’ll look at the role of your local South Auckland medical centre in your pregnancy.

Maternity Care in South Auckland – Finding out that you’re pregnant.

Your journey through maternity usually begins when you suspect you might be pregnant. It’s a joyous event, yet it’s normal to feel a little uncertain, and the information out there can be overwhelming. It’s important to know you have knowledgeable support during this time. It’s also important to prioritise your own and your child’s wellbeing – before the birth and in the years after.

If you think you may be pregnant, the sooner you know what’s happening, the better. You’ll be able to start to do the right things for your baby – and we’re here to help you with that. Call your local South Auckland GP at Botany Medical and Urgent Care on 09 2801790 – or make an appointment online –  and we’ll assist you in getting your pregnancy off to the right start.

  • We’ll help you confirm you’re pregnant
  • Give you a health check
  • We’ll arrange routine antenatal tests for you
  • Talk you through all of your options for care during pregnancy
  • We’ll refer you to appropriate specialist health professionals

If you’re a first-time parent, your local Botany GP will help you navigate the process. If you already have a young family, your South Auckland doctor will check everyone’s up to date with immunisations – before they meet their new brother or sister.

Helping you enjoy pregnancy – Complete maternity care in Botany

Most mothers prefer the same health professionals to be with them the whole way through pregnancy, labour, and birth. We’ll make it easier for you to make decisions you’re happy with, right from the get-go. Here at Botany Medical and Urgent Care, we aim to be a constant for you on your journey. A place you can turn to when you’re anxious, need answers, or experience difficulties. We promise to be with you every step of the way.

Welcoming a new family member into the fold is one of the busiest of times for a family. There’s much to organise and plan, especially if a pregnancy wasn’t planned. Making sure your home is ready for a new arrival can be stressful, time-consuming and hectic – it can be easy to neglect your own health and wellbeing.

On top of all that, it’s essential for your baby’s health that you attend all antenatal appointments – all the way through your pregnancy in a timely manner. These appointments are a chance to monitor baby’s growth, health and development. They provide opportunities to catch any potential issues early – maximising the likelihood your pregnancy will be problem-free.

Here at Botany Medical and Urgent Care, we’ll lighten the load when it comes to organising your pregnancy. We can help you – during pregnancy health checks in Botany – with all things maternity. Meaning you can get on with preparing for the arrival of your newest family member.
