Pregnancy is the most wonderful time of your life. You can finally experience what it's like to be a mother, and you have nine months of blissful anticipation. Of course, the last thing you want is anything to go wrong with the pregnancy or labour, but sometimes things happen that we can't control.
Pregnancy is a difficult time for women. First, you are pregnant, so you have to be careful of what you eat and drink. But how do you know if the restaurant food or water is safe? How about your work environment? Are there any chemicals that could harm your baby?
If you're looking for some help with this, then this blog post might help!

Frequently Asked Question About Obstetrician Melbourne
An obstetrician specialises in obstetrics, which deals with all aspects of pregnancy, from prenatal care to postnatal care. An obstetrician delivers babies, whereas a gynecologist does not. An obstetrician can also provide therapies to help you get pregnant, such as fertility treatments.
This depends a little on your history, but usually, patients are between 8 – 10 weeks of pregnancy. Patients with pre-existing medical problems or who take regular medications should be seen on the earlier side of that window.
Private obstetricians will generally charge an out-of-pocket pregnancy management fee of between $3,000 – $5,000+ including selected scans, tests and medical services. Medicare rebates are available to subsidise some of these costs. However, this is comparatively the most expensive pregnancy care option.
Possible questions to ask your provider during your prenatal appointment:
- Is there a nurse line that I can call if I have questions?
- If I experience bleeding or cramping, do I call you or your nurse?
- What do you consider an emergency?
- Will I need to change my habits regarding sex, exercise, nutrition?
How to choose an obstetrician
- Know what you want. If you decide you want to have an obstetrician, or your GP has recommended you see one, finding the right obstetrician is similar to finding any service provider.
- Shop around and get advice.
- Make sure you're comfortable with them.
- Ask questions.
- Understand your costs upfront.

Private Care Benefits
The main reason to choose a private obstetrician is to guarantee a specialist is in attendance at your birth and to have your choice of which person this is.
Luckily everyone in Australia with a Medicare number is entitled to free treatment as a public patient in a public hospital, paid for by Medicare. However, the public system does rely on trainee doctors (interns, residents and registrars) who provide the majority of the care whilst being supervised by specialists by phone or in person.
In the public system, it is unlikely that you will know who will be present at the birth of your baby until it happens or who your care will be directed by, whether that be by midwives, junior or senior doctors.
Choosing a private obstetrician is an extremely personal decision, by doing so allows you to develop a bond and a relationship with your doctor. The doctor that if an emergency arises, such as going into labour, you can have the confidence within your obstetrician that the decision being made is by a fully qualified specialist with years of experience, someone you built a connection with throughout your appointments.
As a private patient, it also means you have the security of phoning your obstetrician at any time of the day or night with questions about your pregnancy that are not necessarily emergencies.

As a private patient, the fees for managing your pregnancy are claimable by Medicare and not covered by your health insurance. The delivery and hospital accommodation fee is largely covered by your health fund, depending upon your level of insurance. Fees for pathology, ultrasound or other specialists incur additional costs.
Choosing private obstetric care in a private hospital can incur high costs to patients partly due to poor rebates obstetrics receive from Medicare and health insurance companies relative to our expenses. Providing care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from conception until 6 weeks after delivery by highly qualified specialists, professional indemnity insurance, access to a midwife, equipment such as ultrasounds, and maintaining professional rooms carries a financial cost. Acknowledging this is also a time when families are conscious of their own expenses, fees are kept within reach of private patients with private health insurance.
