The full range of Obstetric services are provided.
Dr Bell is able to manage routine as well as more complex problems during pregnancy (eg. diabetes, abnormal thyroid function), provide support for normal pregnancies, manage difficult deliveries (including placenta praevia, prematurity, hypertension, twins, multiple previous caesarean sections and breech presentation).
He is also able to manage higher risk pregnancies through Westmead Hospital (eg. baby known to have a severe congenital abnormality, mother with a severe cardiac condition).
The majority of pregnancies are managed at Norwest Private Hospital.
Dr Bell's philoscophy is that the aim is to achieve a normal delivery with a healthy mum and baby. However, he will agree to an elective caesarean if that is what you wish. I believe that it is your right to decide, after informed discussion, unless what you have in mind is dangerous for yourself or your baby. Its a two way communication process !
