What Do I Need to Bring with me for Antenatal Appointments?
At every antenatal appointment you will need to provide a urine sample. To help us run an efficient clinic, we would be grateful if you would have a fresh sample ready for analysis when meeting the doctor for your scheduled appointment. Sample jars are available in our bathrooms.
Vaccinations During Pregnancy
Flu (Influenza) Vaccine
The flu vaccine is inactive and can be given safely at any time during pregnancy. A pregnant woman who gets the flu is at risk for serious respiratory illness and complications. Getting flu in pregnancy can also lead to premature birth and smaller babies. Flu vaccination during pregnancy provides immunity against influenza infection to babies in the first six months of life.
Whooping Cough (Pertussis) Vaccine
Women should receive whooping cough vaccine during each pregnancy. The expectant mother’s immunity to whooping cough wanes during pregnancy and is unlikely to protect the baby. Vaccination is recommended between 16 and 36 weeks of pregnancy.
Any vaccinations during pregnancy will incur an Administration Fee.
Information on our in-house obstetric ultrasound service is also included in the “Services” section of our website.
