What are GPOs?
We believe in offering the highest standard of health care to you that is a unique service, within the reach of everyone. GPOs are specialist GPs who also provide a comprehensive obstetric service. At Peel Maternity and Family Practice, Dr Peter Kell, Dr Simon Smith and Dr Tom Matthews are focused in obstetric care. They have all studied the Advanced Diploma of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (DRANZCOG) in order to provide complete antenatal and postnatal care of both mother and baby. This includes performing normal and caesarean deliveries, gynaecological procedures and family planning. With our GPOs, we are able to offer the highest standard of healthcare with continuity of care during pregnancy and developing a personal relationship with our patients.
Why do I need to see a midwife?
Our midwives are integral during the care of antenatal patients. During the appointments, the midwives are responsible for all the necessary health check-ups including; taking blood pressure, palpation (feeling baby position and heart), handle any concerns (puffy feet, pelvic pain, what is normal and not normal) and providing the schedule of visits to the patient. With their expertise, the midwives also provide the necessary emotional care to mums and partners to be, listening to the patients and providing one on one support.
Our unique, personalised service
If you have already seen a doctor in your pregnancy we would appreciate copies of all results be sent to us. We believe there is no other service in WA, or perhaps even Australia, that provides anywhere near the quality and personalised expert maternity care that Peel Maternity is able to deliver. We work with a highly collaborative model where the doctors, midwives and allied health practitioners work seamlessly together with each other and our patients.
