Not Pregnant, Just Looking

Not Pregnant, Just Looking” is a 2 hour information session and tour developed by the PLaN team for couples planning a pregnancy.

Sessions are held on a Tuesday evening every few months at the Royal Hospital for Women Lecture Theatre, Level 1 Women’s Health Institute.

This session provides information by a geneticist and midwife to couples planning a pregnancy in a small interactive environment. It includes similar information provided in the PLaN clinic and discusses models of care available for women who choose to birth at the Royal Hospital for Women.

Although participants can ask general questions during the session they will not be able to have an individual risk assessment  as they would in the PLaN clinic.  Participants in “Not Pregnant, Just Looking” are welcome to attend the PLaN clinic if they have any specific questions or concerns.

Time :  Tuesdays 7 - 9 pm 

Dates: 20th July, 16th November 2021
