Pre-pregnancy planning

At Proserpine Medical Centre we are able to assist you in your pre-pregnancy planning by going through a number of checks such as:

  • Folic acid intake
  • Advice if you are currently smoking or drinking regularly
  • If you have a medical condition, we can see what can be done to have it resolved or managed
  • Discuss what if any over-the-counter and prescription medicines you are using

At your appointment you will discuss the above and more with one of our friendly nurses as well as Dr. Joice

Antenatal care

The first antenatal visit usually occurs between 6 and 12 weeks gestation. You can expect this visit to take up to 30 minutes. A thorough medical history and examination will be performed. If not already done, a dating scan will be done.

Postnatal care

We can care for you and your baby after. At Proserpine Medical Centre we believe care does not finish here and we can provide a patient care plan including when all key vaccinations are due, etc. If you have any further questions please speak to one of our friendly nurses or Dr. Joice on your next visit.

Pap Smear

This is a procedure of cervical screening used to detect potentially abnormal cells in the cervix. It is currently recommend every 2 years (unless otherwise stated). To book an appointment for this test please speak to one our friend Nurses or Reception staff. Please allow a longer consultation time for this as at this visit we will discuss lifestyle issues and breast examinations.

If you have any other concerns please mention it to Dr Joice or one of our friendly Nurses.
