LABOUR AND DELIVERY MANAGEMENT
As obstetricians, we are trained to act in the best interests of both mother and baby to achieve healthy outcomes. Dr Brenters has the level of skills you expect and is experienced in both straightforward and complicated deliveries. Additionally, as far as possible, Dr Brenters will accommodate your wishes for labour so that, as well as joy at the outcome, you may feel satisfaction with the steps that led you there.
If you elect to have a “Nuchal Translucency / First Trimester” Ultrasound performed between 11 – 13 weeks gestation to assess for Chromosomal defects, you will be referred outside the practice to a dedicated obstetric ultrasound centre. You will also be referred to the same ultrasound centre for your routine “Fetal Anomaly” ultrasound performed between 18 -20 weeks. Ultrasound examination for Fetal Growth & Wellbeing will be performed by Dr Brenters at each consultation.
Antenatal visits are an important part of your pregnancy management and have been shown to have beneficial effect on pregnancy outcomes. The normal visits are 8 weeks, 13 – 14 weeks, 19 – 20, 24, 28, 31 weeks and then fortnightly until 36 weeks and then weekly until delivery..

“I am pretty sure you already know how I feel but I’ll say it anyway – thank you for being so fantastic. To come to a friendly, understanding reception helps make a great experience…. Coming to the doctors was like visiting a friend.”
“I am so glad that you were my doctor for the whole of my second pregnancy. It was fantastic to have a doctor that cares: knowing that I could phone if I had a problem and the little things like helping me stand up (when I resembled a beached whale), made a world of difference. Even though I had stressful factors over the 9 months, this pregnancy was not overly stressful, and I have Dr Brenters and Sally to thank for that. Thank you so much for all your care.”
