Pregnancy health record
Pregnancy health records are used in the Northern Territory (NT) to record details of medical visits and general health information during pregnancy.
Information included in your pregnancy health record can include any of the following:
- blood tests
- medical history
- measurements of your uterus
- foetal heart sounds and movement.
Your general practitioner (GP), obstetrician or midwife will start your handheld record at one of your first pregnancy appointments.
You will get to keep this record and a copy will be made and filed in your medical records.
It is important to take your pregnancy health record to all appointments, especially if you travel interstate or overseas. It is used by your doctor, midwife and other health professionals to give you the most appropriate care.
If you don't have one, you can ask your midwife to provide your record at any time.
