Avonlea Clinic is a specialist group practice providing obstetric and gynaecological services for women in the wider Geelong region.
Our team of highly skilled and experienced specialists include Dr Marilla Druitt, Dr Anne Hotchin and Dr Tony Ma, who together work across three public and private hospitals in Geelong to provide the best of care. Together with our wonderful reception support staff we offer friendly and informative care for pregnancies and women’s health problems.
Our specialists are highly skilled in management of high risk pregnancy care, pregnancy planning, colposcopy of abnormal cervical screening, prolapse, advanced laparoscopic surgery for fibroids, endometriosis, abdominal and vaginal surgery. We book pregnant women at St John of God Hospital Geelong and perform gynaecology surgery at SJOG Geelong and Epworth Geelong.
Should you get pregnant in the COVID era?
There is still so much to learn about the novel coronavirus, but scientists have unlocked some clues about the way COVID-19 affects pregnant women and their unborn children.
A review of dozens of scientific studies has found that women who contract coronavirus during pregnancy may have a higher risk of premature delivery.
And while pregnant women also seem to have less severe symptoms initially, if they do get sick it's likely to be worse than non-pregnant patients.
