Please call our rooms to make your first appointment.
WHEN WILL MY FIRST APPOINTMENT BE?
Some patients who had previous complications in pregnancy or who are at a high risk of complications prefer to commence appointments with Dr Lulania from 8 weeks.
Your first appointment can be booked for you once you have obtained a referral for Dr Lulania from GP, your pregnancy has been confirmed and you have had your antenatal blood screenings. You should have also had a Dating Scan with an Imaging Specialist, referred by your GP and discussed the optional screening for Down Syndrome (NT Scan) and had a request form given to you by your GP. This should ideally be performed at 12 weeks.
You will see both one of our midwives and Dr Lulania at the same appointment at 10-14 weeks. This routine will occur throughout your antenatal services at the pregnancy. You are also able to call our rooms to speak with one of our midwives any time you have concerns.
In this case you need to allow at least 1 hour for appointment time and extra time for waiting. Dr Lulania does strive to be on time for appointments, however emergencies and deliveries of other babies do occur and we appreciate your patience when this does occur.
WHAT DO I NEED FOR MY FIRST APPOINTMENT?
You will need to bring with you on your appointment day:
- Your referral from your GP.
- Your antenatal blood test results, which should be requested by your GP once your pregnancy is confirmed.
- A copy of the report from your dating scan and NT Scan, requested by your GP. This is to be performed at Regional Imaging Wagga Wagga, Imaging Associates Wagga Wagga or your closest Imaging Specialist.
- Your Medicare card and Health Fund details. Please call your health fund to clarify your level of cover and whether you are fully covered for Obstetrics.
