It’s your pregnancy and birth!
Every pregnancy is different, so your pregnancy care should be tailored to you, based on both what you want and need, as well as what’s best for your baby. Throughout your pregnancy we will regularly talk about your wishes and goals, and work together towards these goals. I believe in ‘informed choice’, and I will always provide you with the information you need, in language that makes sense, and is easy to understand.
This is really important as you’ll be fully informed about benefits, risks and likely outcomes of any given course of action, which will help you make decisions confidently. And so you’ll receive this personalised care, the number of pregnant patients I care for each month is limited.
Early on in the pregnancy, we’ll meet monthly, then more often as you get beyond 30 weeks. If you’re worried or if we’re monitoring a variance, I’ll see you as often as needed. At each of your appointments I will check you and your baby’s progress, we’ll perform an ultrasound to check on your baby, and ensure that everything is progressing as it should be.
Please call me Andrew
In my practice, I like to have a relaxed consulting and communication style. You won’t see me wearing a tie, and I prefer to be called Andrew, not Dr Zuschmann. I want you to feel comfortable, and I encourage you to ask me any questions you may have about your pregnancy (trust me, I’ve heard them all!).
