Antenatal Counselling, Sydney
Antenatal ultrasounds can detect a number of abnormal conditions in your foetus that may require surgery when your baby is born. Your obstetrician can advise you if it is appropriate to meet with one of our team at Sydney Children’s Surgery before the birth of your child.
You will want to get as much information as possible once you are aware that there is a possible problem with your baby. Dr Dilley and Dr Russell provide an antenatal counselling service whereby they can explain what to expect at the time of your child’s birth, and what is likely to happen afterwards.
Conditions that may be detected before your child’s birth include:
- Abdominal wall defects such as gastroschisis or exomphalos
- Blockages of the bowel such as duodenal atresia or small bowel atresia
- Congenital diaphragmatic hernia
- Cysts in the body such as cysts in the lung and chest, the abdomen or ovaries
Make an appointment to see Dr Anthony Dilley or Dr Carolyn Russell at Sydney Children’s Surgery at their clinic in Gymea or Randwick.
