After this you will be seen fortnightly and in the in the last 4 weeks of your pregnancy you will be seen on a weekly basis. If there are any concerns, you will be seen more frequently or admitted to hospital if required.
Dr Kwok’s clinic uses state of the art equipment including a high resolution 3D/4D ultrasound which is used to scan your pregnancy at the first visit and thereafter.
Dr Kwok will guide you through tests including:
Initial Blood Tests

The NSW Department of Health recommends that all pregnant women have the flu vaccination and the whooping cough vaccination during their pregnancy. These vaccinations are given to patients as a complimentary service in his rooms.
In the second half of your pregnancy, Dr Kwok will prepare you for the birth of your baby. He will discuss the labour and your preferences for baby’s birth and, in the case of an emergency, any assistance with the birth that may be required.
Dr Kwok endeavours to ensure that all antenatal appointments commence on time. However, on those occasions where he is called away for an urgent delivery, you will be contacted by mobile phone to postpone or re-arrange your appointment. It is hoped that patients will be understanding of this as babies may be born at any time of the day or night and of course any day of the week.
