    Default just been referred to KEMH

    Hi all. Ive just moved to Perth and im 26 weeks pregnant. I had booked in with a private ob back from my old home town when I was 5 wks pregnant. Things have not been going so great and ive called the private ob a few times only to be told we are very busy and can only see you in a few weeks. I visited a gp who was shocked but also concerned about a few issues. The gp recommeneds going to KEMH where there are specialist who can help with a few things....I have 2 autoimmune diseases, bp issues are just a few.
    How long does it take to get into Kemh?
    If you are high risk do you see an ob for appts?
    Sorry for l9ng post

    I'm 28 weeks and also at KEMH. It took around a month to get in, but I was around 16 weeks then.

    I see an OB at everu appointment, however it has been a different one each time.

    I would give King Eddy a call (assuming you have the referral from the GP)

    If you have issues, they will want to see you straight away I would think.

    Hi tinkers, my appointments went from monthly, they're now fortnightly.
    I would definitely call to ensure they received your referral.

    Called today. Was told that I have to wait for a letter in the mail and that I should expect this to take 4 weeks atleast.

    4 weeks? Shouldn't you be having a GTT in that time? And if you're a negative, an anti d shot.
    Maybe see if your Dr can call and push them along. Otherwise if you have any problems you can present to MFAU at KEMH for assessment.

    Which OBs have you tried around Perth?

    Try calling Perth Obstetrics http://pogs.com.au they have 3 OBs and one might be able to help you (I recommend Dr Wu if he's available!)

    With all that risk, I would definitely be getting your dr to push them. Good luck!
