Obstetrics

Being pregnant is full of changes and challenges. Whilst having a baby for the first time is an exciting, scary, wonderful, worrying experience, those scary worries are just how the experience and up-to-date knowledge of Dr Knight can help you.

“Having a baby and children is a wonderful experience.” Dr Knight says, “I still have amazingly clear memories of holding my eldest daughter just after she was born. More than two decades later!” Dr Knight is about providing you with informed choices and the highest level of obstetric care during pregnancy. The “informed choice” approach to pregnancy and delivery management is to give you the best chance of delivering a healthy baby that can grow up to become a fully functional member of society.

You will be involved in decision-making about your pregnancy, and be kept fully informed about risks, benefits and likely outcomes of a given course of action. Once your pregnancy booking is confirmed, you have 24 hour a day, 7 day a week access to a Specialist Obstetrician for urgent matters. Your obstetric care will be personalised to meet all your and your baby's health care needs during the pregnancy. This includes:

  • Consultation and care for pregnancy, delivery and postpartum
  • Natural childbirth
  • Family planning services including pre-conception care, genetic disorder counselling, and miscarriage
  • Care for complications of pregnancy
  • Access to caesarean section
  • Fetal diagnostic services
  • High-risk obstetrics
  • Ultrasound service

Not everyone is able to, nor wants to choose a private Obstetrician and Dr Knight respects that choice. However he believes that choosing him as your Private Obstetrician to care for you during your pregnancy opens a wider range of choices, as well as a greater commitment to supporting your choice than you would likely otherwise experience.
