Obstetrics: First And Second Trimester Issues

Obstetrics: First and Second Trimester Issues

ABOUT:

The role of GPs in maternity care is changing and being redefined, with a decline in GP­-led obstetric care in Australia. Many GPs however, work with women antenatally and continue family care after the birth, even if they do not practise intrapartum obstetrics. Almost 90% of women contact their GP to confirm their pregnancy and discuss appropriate maternity care. Shared or GP primary antenatal care, with some or all antenatal visits conducted in general practice and intrapartum care undertaken by hospital midwifery and obstetric staff, is chosen by 40%–50% of women who receive obstetric care in the public sector. It is therefore important to know how to identify and manage obstetric issues especially in the first and second trimesters.
