Providing the best possible care for you and your baby
Welcome to Femina Baby
Our philosophy is simple – the better we know you, the better we can care for you.
The service we provide at Femina Baby is based around the principle of building and maintaining relationships with you, your family doctor, your LMC midwife, and anyone else who cares for you. Our dedicated team is passionate about ensuring that your pregnancy journey is as enjoyable and stress free as possible and that the care you receive is tailored for you.
Whether you are planning a family and needing pre-conception or fertility support, or are already pregnant and wanting genetic screening or complete obstetric care for your pregnancy and birth, we are here for you.
At Femina Baby our model of care has been created from the ground up and our passion is your pregnancy journey. We are proud to be different and believe that we can help you achieve the care you deserve.
Our patients are at the heart of all we do
Why choose Femina Baby?
Continuity of care
The same team of obstetricians will care for you throughout your pregnancy and delivery alongside your chosen midwife.
Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is available through Femina Baby. This is a revolutionary screening test, only available privately, to accurately determine the risk that a fetus will be born with certain genetic abnormalities or conditions. At Femina Baby we can provide testing and support you through the interpretation of your individual results.
At Femina Baby we have a comprehensive antenatal care plan which is carefully tailored for every woman as we recognise that every pregnancy and delivery is unique. Working closely with your chosen midwife and family doctor is a key part of providing the excellence we aim to deliver.
Opting for private care with Femina Baby gives you plenty of flexibility when booking appointments at our friendly and comfortable rooms. We also we aim to make scheduling your scans simple and stress-free. We are easy to find and have plenty of free parking on site.
