The doctors aim to run to schedule, however due to the unpredictable nature of obstetrics, delays are sometimes unavoidable. Where possible you will be notified of delays, but you may like to call an hour before your appointment to check your doctor is running on time.

Things to bring to your first appointment are:
- A referral from your GP
- Your Medicare card and health insurance details
- Results of any tests, scans or other relevant documents
