    Default What to do re moving whilst pregnant

    Hi all

    We r currently TTC no 3.
    We're in sydney at the moment but definitely moving to Perth at the years end.
    Ds1 has been enrolled in 4yo kinder over there so he needs to start school late Jan.

    If I fall pg, wwyd about ante natal care?

    I'd like to go private, I'm 37 and I'd like a little more monitoring due to age.

    But say I fall pg now (currently doing the 2 week wait), the baby would be born in Feb. So I need to give birth in Perth as ds will be in kinder,

    Does anyone know if it's possible to do my first 6 months of care in sydney with an OB (or even shared care with a midwife or Gp), and then have say 2 months + give birth in a different state?

    And I guess to any perth girls, do u know of any OBs that would allow such an arrangement?
    We'll be living near Stirling/karrinyup, from what I've read the hospital at Osborne Park isn't that great sobi was thinking to go to St John of God at Subi.

    Thanks for reading!

    Hi!

    I was in the same predicament! I moved while pregnant with my daughter and did the first 6 months in NSW and the last 3 in VIC. I spoke to the ob/mid when I found out and they said its super easy to transfer your care, and it really was. When I found out I rang the hospital in the area I was moving to and organised a booking in appt over the phone and then when I moved, notified them and they jus picked up where my original ob had and with no problems. Just kept everything in my maternal health record.
    Everyone was very flexible and helpful..no real issues bar a couple repeated blood tests but that didn't phase me at all.

    Feel free to pm me if you have any other questions

    I was public though but I can't see how it would be any different
