Health alert: COVID-19

COVID-19 Alert: We are currently at GREEN traffic light level - there is no restriction for coming to hospital to receive healthcare. Visitors are currently welcome at Metro South Health facilities, and are asked to help keep patients safe by maintaining physical distancing where possible and practising hand hygiene. See visitor restrictions and the latest Queensland Government information.

I'm pregnant—where do I go now?

If you think you are pregnant, the first thing to do is go to your usual GP (local doctor) to confirm the pregnancy and have a check-up.

Your GP will ask you lots of questions and talk to you about your options for maternity care.

They will also organise:

  • a referral to your chosen hospital
  • urine test
  • blood tests
  • ultrasounds.

How to find a GP

We recommend that all pregnant women have a GP they can trust and to receive ongoing care for themselves and their family after baby is born.

If you don’t have a regular GP, you can use the Healthdirect service finder.
