O&G Specialists in the Heartlands
Getting quality prenatal care does not mean having to endure a long commute and large crowd in town. There are many obstetrician-gynaecologists in the heartlands too!
When you are pregnant, long commutes and large crowds can be very uncomfortable. Thankfully, getting quality care no longer means having to endure both; these days, there are experienced obstetrics and gynaecology (O&G) specialists to be found practising near your home too! What’s more, each of these clinics are located within walking distance of coffee shops where you can have your meals before or after your clinic consults.
Here is a team of experienced O&G specialists from the Astra Women’s Specialist Group, who are in our neighbourhoods, easily accessible by public transport.
