It is always recommended that you see a doctor when planning a pregnancy. This ensures you are in the best possible health at the time of conception and prepared for your pregnancy. Your GP is often well placed to provide this pre-pregnancy consultation for you.
Some women however benefit from seeing an Obstetrician for a pre-pregnancy review.
At TasOGS our all-female Obstetricians provide comprehensive antenatal, birthing and postnatal care for women who are planning to birth at the Hobart Private Hospital.
Your primary Obstetrician will provide your antenatal care at our TasOGS rooms. This antenatal care will include regular antenatal visits at specific gestations during your pregnancy and planning for the safe birth of your baby.
During the course of your antenatal care you will meet the other obstetricians at TasOGS. This ensures that you are always familiar with the TasOGS obstetrician at your birth if your primary obstetrician is not available.
Our Obstetricians support vaginal births, elective caesarean sections and vaginal birth after a previous caesarean section when safe for you and your baby. One of our Obstetricians is always on-call and available for emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.
TasOGS is committed to ensure that all of our women obtain the personal care of an obstetrician who is:
- Open-minded about conception, pregnancy and birthing preferences.
- Personable and non-judgemental towards women, their families and support networks.
- Very aware of the physical, psychological and social impacts a pregnancy may have on a woman’s wellbeing.
- Available by phone at all times for the discussion of any acute concerns.
- Able to meet you at the Hobart Private Hospital in the case of an emergency.
Our experienced female Gynaecologists have a broad and complementary skill-set, and are able to provide a wide range of gynaecological services. These include both gynaecological consultations in our practice rooms and gynaecological procedures and surgical services as needed.
At TasOGS our gynaecologists can perform investigations and small procedures in our rooms, such as gynaecology ultrasound, contraceptive device insertion or removal, and endometrial biopsy.
TasOGS gynaecologists operate at Hobart Private Hospital. A full range of gynaecological surgical procedures are offered, including vaginal, open abdominal and laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery.
Laparoscopic surgery, sometimes known as ‘keyhole surgery’, was developed by gynaecologists more than 40 years ago. At TasOGS our Gynaecologists are able to provide both emergency and elective laparoscopic surgery.
When suitable, minimally-invasive laparoscopic surgery can lead to faster and less painful recoveries, fewer days in hospital and time away from work and home, and reduced scarring.
TasOGS laparoscopic services include diagnostic laparoscopy, dye studies, treatment of endometriosis, treatment of ectopic pregnancy, removal of cysts, tubes or ovaries, and laparoscopic hysterectomies.
