Giving Birth

While she will do her best to ensure you’re able to experience childbirth the way you would like to, labour and delivery can be unpredictable.

Anaesthetist 

If you need an epidural in labour or if your baby is to be delivered by Caesarean Section, you will need an Anaesthetist on hand to administer your anaesthetic. Dr Bajra will organise an Anaesthetist to help with the Caesarean Section.

After Delivery

After the birth of your baby,  you will be provided support in looking after the baby and with breastfeeding. A referral Lactation Consultant will be organised if needed.  You will be given details of maternal and child welfare clinics for ongoing feeding advice.  Dr Bajra understands that breastfeeding may not be an option for all patients, and she supports her patients in whatever feeding decisions they make.
