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.
