Pregnancy - What to Expect
Once your pregnancy is confirmed we would be delighted to hear from you either by phone or email, where our friendly staff will guide you through the booking process and answer any questions you may have about this exciting time.
Initial Consult - We recommend coming in for your first appointment between 8-10 weeks of pregnancy. During this appointment, Dr Mandapati will meet the expectant mum and her family, gain all relevant medical history and answer any questions or concern.
From here at each and every visit, you will be greeted and seen by Dr Mandapati. Visits are structured monthly until 28 weeks, then fortnightly until you reach 36 weeks were visits become weekly, depending on the individual needs, which will be tailored accordingly.
Antenatal bloods should have been completed prior to becoming a patient of Dr Mandapati's, through your GP, but if not, these will be ordered at your initial consult.
Scans - Formal ultrasounds are offered through Central Coast Women's Imaging, located on site. Some women require additional scans to these, Dating scan, 11-13 weeks for First Trimester Screening (NT),18-20 weeks for Morphology ultrasound, and a growth scan.
Once in Dr Mandapati's care, feel free to call the surgery during office hours, and speak to the helpful team with any queries or concerns. If an emergency arises after-hours, please address via the Gosford Private Delivery Suite in the first instance.
