Jane Grant Care

Jane Grant Care

Pregnant? Do you often think about your pregnancy and what birth will be like? I’m sure you do but, like many women, you may not give much thought about the early days at home after you leave hospital with your new baby. This is where Jane Grant Care can help.

My lactation and postnatal services will provide you with the right support you need to help you through the first 6 weeks by offering individualised, professional midwifery care in your own home. I offer full checks of mother and newborn, breastfeeding advice and review, formula feeding advice, birth debrief and emotional support for new parents plus lots more!

No need to leave the comfort of your home to attend an after birth check-up at your birth hospital with all the added stress of getting out of the door with a newborn- I can come to you! Visits are scheduled to fit around you to help maximise your recovery. Evidence suggests that women who have support in the immediate postnatal period report higher breastfeeding rates and lower rates of postnatal depression.

I have cared for hundreds of women in the Ryde area since 2006 whilst working as a midwife and lactation specialist at Ryde Midwifery Group Practice and I have set up my own private midwifery practice so now all women can access my care.

Why not book private antenatal education sessions at a convenient time for you in your own home? Some people prefer not to attend the traditional hospital classes for a variety of personal reasons and so miss out on valuable information.  My personalised sessions answer the questions that are specific to your needs so helping you make informed decisions about your pregnancy, birth and beyond. 1 or 2 sessions are recommended and each session lasts 2 hours. The cost for each session is $200.

Qualifications: UK trained Registered Nurse and Midwife for over 35 years, AHPRA Endorsed midwife meaning women can access Medicare rebates, Lactation Specialist, fully insured.

Please contact me anytime for a chat and more information. Looking forward to hearing from you.

WiSE Specialist Emergency Clinic, Macquarie Park

WiSE Specialist Emergency Clinic, Macquarie Park

WiSE offers immediate medical care when an accident or emergency requires more than a GP visit, but is considered non-life threatening or unlikely to require admission to hospital.

We anticipate that the privately operated facility, which will operate 10am-10pm, 7 days a week, will become a valued addition to the community based acute care. Staffed only by Emergency Specialists, WiSE also offers Radiology, Pathology and acute follow specialist clinics.

With increasing pressure on the public emergency health system and approximately 70 per cent of presentations to Emergency Departments in NSW not resulting in hospital admission, there exists a clear need for self-contained, community-based specialist emergency medical care. As such, WiSE has been established by Emergency Specialists with an interest in the delivery of emergency medicine outside the hospital environment.

WiSE Specialist Emergency Clinic provides immediate specialist care for but not limited to:

  • Minor falls/trips
  • Complication lacerations Suspected fractures
  • Sporting injuries
  • Problems in early pregnancy Fevers – adult and child Cellulitis
  • Atypical chest pains
  • Suspected DVT/PE
  • Workplace injuries
  • Vomiting and diarrhoea
  • Dental emergencies
  • Intractable migraines/headache Mild asthma

The WiSE Clinic will provide initial assessment and treatment of a broad range of medical conditions and injuries, some of which may require admission to hospital or referral to another specialist. In these instances, WiSE doctors will work with local hospitals, ambulance services and/or specialists to optimise patient outcomes. Additionally, health care providers can be assured that patients referred to WiSE for specialist emergency medical care will be rapidly seen by a senior specialist, and the referring doctor will be provided with a comprehensive report on the clinical outcome.
