    Default Maternal Fetal Medicine KEMH

    Hi ladies

    Does anyone have any experience with the Maternal Fetal Medicine unit at KEMH Perth as a Public patient? (High risk clinic)

    TIA

    I had an amnio done through there last year but as it was normal I was able to go back through the KEMH birth centre.

    I had my twins through the high risk clinic in 2012 and saw dr pennell. I couldn't fault the service and care I received.

    Did you go through as a public patient?

    Sorry coming back to reply properly. We went through as a public country patient as my baby had kidneys that were too bright on scans and thought she might have had polycystic kidneys. The team were very good midwives were great. I did feel a little lost in the system as I was used to more personal care that I received from my home town

    Thanks for your reply hun. I hope your bubba is ok.

    I hope you dont mind me asking some questions.

    How often were your appointments?

    Were you seen by midwives at most of your appts?

    Do you feel like the appointments were thorough enough?

    Yes she seems to be fine thank goodness
    My appointments were every 5 weeks from 26 weeks for scans at kemh. I had midwife appointments at my home town every 2 weeks. When we had scans there was 3 doctors and 1 midwife present. After or before the scan I saw the midwife for a normal appointment these were done at the scan area at kemh. The one time that I attended there high risk clinic at kemh we saw the midwives and also the doctor and received a quick scan.
    The appointments were thorough although some what impersonal and felt a bit like just a number and was confusing to know who to call when I had questions but this could have been just because I was used to the small town country care. I felt a bit like this when I gave birth to my daughter as well although I couldn't really fault them aside from discharging us with out rechecking baby's weight which would have prevented being re admitted into special care nursery with too much weight loss but this is another story 😀.
    When getting scans they were very thorough and gave me all the info they could at the time there was no waiting.
