Pregnancy and Antenatal Care

Drs Ann Shippers and Jackie Sloan have many years of experience providing comprehensive antenatal care. They work closely with private obstetricians and Shoalhaven and Wollongong Hospitals to provide best practice antenatal care. We know our pregnant patients appreciate seeing their own GP for their antenatal care appointments, providing consistency and personalised care.

The GPs at Gerringong Medical Practice have a strong focus on expecting and new mothers’ mental health, recognising that this can be a very emotional and difficult time.

They also provide pre-conception advice and investigations. They provide a comprehensive assessment then offer advice which aims to improve your health and wellbeing in preparation for a pregnancy. This may sometimes include pre-conception vaccinations, dietary changes, and advice on smoking cessation.
