HRT & Menopause Counselling

Menopause can be a confusing and distressing time for women, which is why we offer professional HRT & menopause counselling to help.

HRT is also called Menopausal Hormone Therapy. Menopause is time when the woman’s period stops. It’s a normal result of aging. In the years before and during menopause the levels of female hormones can go up and down. This can cause symptoms such as hot flashes in the face, neck and/ or chest plus vaginal dryness. Some women take Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) to relieve these symptoms. When menopause comes, there is a greater chance of heart disease and osteoporosis. HRT can protect against these diseases. If you feel tired from menopause and you think that you may need HRT, the team here in Women Health & Family Planning Clinic offers checks, counselling, and accurate HRT plans that can help. We have various prescription products to treat hot flashes and vaginal symptoms and also offer general counselling for women in this stage of life.

Incontinence Counselling

We offer help to women of all ages experiencing incontinence.

Incontinence occurs when you can no longer control your bladder, resulting in accidents and leakages throughout the day. This can occur due to menopause as well as after childbirth and vaginal trauma. Here at Women Health & Family Planning Clinic, we offer a range of incontinence testing, treatment, and counselling services available to women of all ages. 

Miscarriage Counselling & Investigation

Experiencing a miscarriage can be deeply traumatic and upsetting. The Women Health & Family Planning Clinic team is here to help.

Losing a baby through miscarriage can be an extremely upsetting and confusing time. The team here at Women Health & Family Planning Clinic offers help, advice, investigations, and treatment to help you understand the reasons for miscarriage and precautions to take if you attempt to conceive again in the future. Miscarriages can occur due to a number of reasons, with approximately one in eight pregnancies ending in miscarriage. If you’ve been affected by one or more miscarriages and need help, support, and counselling, we can help.

Pelvic Pain Counselling & Investigation

Experiencing pelvic pain? Get in touch with our team of medical professionals today for help.

Chronic Pelvic Pain in a woman is a common problem and can be caused by a number of different issues and conditions. Symptoms of chronic pelvic pain include lower abdominal pain and pain before and during sexual intercourse. Specific causes are difficult to identify and treatment is often limited to relieve symptoms, but this can be resolved if a reason for chronic pelvic pain is identified. Here at Women Health & Family Planning Clinic, we offer ultrasounds and/or internal examinations using a laparoscope to rule out serious conditions, provide reassurance, and organise a treatment plan for your chronic pelvic pain.

Pre-Pregnancy Counselling

We offer professional help, advice, and counselling to women who are trying to conceive.

Pre-Pregnancy Counselling is an important service for women wanting to get pregnant or women who are already pregnant. We provide pregnancy counselling services that involve education on important aspects of pregnancy and pre-pregnancy, including nutrition, medication use and lifestyle changes in advance of getting pregnant. Issues discussed during our pre-pregnancy counselling services may include diet, nutrition, exercise, smoking, alcohol, drugs, emotional health and referral to genetic counselling if a patient knows about inherited diseases that may be a concern.

Antenatal Care

Pre-childbirth, we offer antenatal care services in combination with your hospital for a full-service, professional antenatal care plan.

Antenatal Care, or prenatal care, is a type of healthcare tailored to pregnant woman and babies before the baby is born. This is a preventative type of medical care, ensuring the overall health of mother and baby determining various complications that could arise during pregnancy or birth. During our antenatal care services, we provide routine clinic visits with physical exams and routine lab tests. We also provide antenatal care packages to be availed of in combination with your hospital care plan for an in-depth and reassuring pre-birth care service you can trust. Our scanning with ultrasound can check baby size, heart beats, etc.

Post-Natal Care & Counselling

The months after birth can be a challenging and emotional time for all mothers. We offer post-natal care and counselling to help you overcome this.

Post-Natal Care refers to the healthcare provided to mothers after the delivery of a baby. During this time, many mothers will feel tired, sore and fatigued, often lacking the energy to look after herself or the baby. Here at Women Health & Family Planning Clinic, we offer empathetic and supportive services to help mothers overcome such circumstances and provide empathetic post-natal care to ensure that you are recovering from birth in a healthy and positive way. We can also help with any other questions you may have regarding the health and care of you or your baby. During our post-natal care services, we offer advice about breastfeeding and all the necessary guidance for nutrition, lifestyle, exercises in addition of the required medications, vitamins, iron supplementation, etc. We can also discuss contreception plans for the future.
