Your Pregnancy Symptoms:

During pregnancy, your body goes through remarkable changes, and it’s essential to listen to what it is telling you. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms or have concerns about your pregnancy, Dr Hammond is here to lend a caring ear and offer expert assistance:

 

  • Morning sickness: Nausea and vomiting can be distressing during the early months of pregnancy.
  • Fatigue: Feeling more tired than usual is common during pregnancy due to hormonal changes and increased energy demands.
  • Breast tenderness: Hormonal fluctuations can cause sensitivity and tenderness in the breasts.
  • Frequent urination: The growing uterus exerts pressure on the bladder, leading to more frequent bathroom trips.
  • Changes in appetite: Pregnancy can cause fluctuations in food cravings and aversions.
  • Weight gain: Gaining weight is a normal part of pregnancy but should be monitored to ensure a healthy range.
  • Mood swings: Hormonal changes may lead to emotional ups and downs.
  • Swelling and bloating: Edema or swelling in the feet and ankles may occur due to fluid retention.
  • Back pain: The growing uterus can place strain on the lower back, causing discomfort.
  • Vaginal bleeding or spotting: Any abnormal vaginal bleeding should be promptly addressed.
  • High blood pressure: Elevated blood pressure during pregnancy requires careful monitoring and management.

Expert Diagnosis and Care:

Dr Randall Hammond takes a holistic approach to antenatal care, encompassing meticulous assessments, attentive listening, and compassionate support. Our team is trained to diagnose and address a wide range of pregnancy-related conditions, ensuring the health and safety of both you and your baby. Dr Hammond will conduct a thorough physical examination and may recommend additional tests or screenings based on your symptoms and medical history.

Some of the diagnoses we specialise in include:

  • Gestational Diabetes: If you’re at risk for or have developed gestational diabetes, we’ll work with you to manage your blood sugar levels and ensure the best possible outcomes for you and your baby.
  • Preeclampsia: Early detection and careful management of preeclampsia can help reduce risks for both mother and baby.
  • Thyroid Disorders: If you have pre-existing thyroid conditions or develop thyroid issues during pregnancy, Dr Hammond will provide personalised treatment plans to support your health.
  • Anaemia: We’ll monitor your iron levels and provide appropriate interventions if you are diagnosed with anaemia during pregnancy.
  • Infections: Early detection and management of infections during pregnancy are crucial for the health of both you and your baby.
  • Foetal Development Abnormalities: In the event of suspected foetal developmental issues, we’ll conduct detailed ultrasounds and other diagnostic procedures to assess your baby’s well-being.
