During your pregnancy
Along with your obstetrician visits to Bayside Obstetrics and Gynaecology, you will also have visits with Jaqui during your pregnancy, establishing a relationship that will continue throughout your delivery and postnatal period. Our aim is to provide a continuous service where you feel comfortable and supported in your choices, ultimately for the outcome of a healthy mum and baby.
After your delivery
Following your delivery under Bayside Obstetrics and Gynaecology, you will be visited daily by the midwifery team and the obstetricians for all your postnatal needs to continue your care. Upon discharge the midwives will continue to provide home visits at no cost and usually within 72 hours of returning home with your new baby.
Jaqui McRae is highly experienced in pregnancy, labour and post-delivery care, and is available for clinic or home visits, as well as telephone consults via mobile (0421 647876) to provide exceptional service for all her mothers and families.
Our home service
Our home visit service provides for continuity of care and support for families and their new babies. During your visit you can expect:
- Parenting information and advice
- Breast feeding and artificial feeding advice and support, allowing choice
- Postnatal checks for both mother and baby, including weighing and measuring of baby to ensure that you are both healthy and thriving
- Advice on settling techniques for a newborn
- Ongoing emotional support
Our free bulk-billed midwifery home service is unique to South East Queensland and is included in your Bayside Obstetrics and Gynaecology experience, for up to 6 weeks post-delivery, usually on a weekly basis but more often if required. Furthermore, should you have difficulty and require postnatal service, our midwives are only too happy and always available to assist regardless of where you delivered and where you live.
