Due to the severe implications of COVID-19 and the recent government regulations we are making significant changes to how our practice operates.
We are taking significant precautions to protect our patients from COVID-19, and also (and with good reason) to protect our health practitioners from exposure.
Anyone who has these conditions should be quarantined at home and should not attend the practice:
- You have been overseas in the last 14 days (even if not required to self-isolate by the government regulations)
- You are in any way unwell
- You or someone in your household has a fever, cough or respiratory symptoms
- You have been in close contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19
We are moving to make almost all of our appointments remote. As soon as possible we are hoping to use a video link, but until that is running we will use phone or FaceTime.
In some circumstances, including most pregnancy appointments, you will come to the rooms. In this case, please only bring accompanying people if necessary, and please discuss this with us first. Children should not be brought at all. You may contact reception to let us know you’ve arrived, and we will let you know when to come in to minimise your wait.
Our office hours may also be affected by these measures. In this case, phones may be diverted, or you may need to leave a message. We will endeavour to respond to you as soon as possible. Please feel free to email as well: email@example.com for appointments and general enquiries; firstname.lastname@example.org for medical information.
These measures are to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as much as possible, to prevent an overwhelming number of people becoming sick at the same time, which our health system will not be able to accommodate, and to protect our healthcare staff. If doctors are exposed to the virus and required to quarantine or isolate, they will not be able to care for patients when they need it. I understand that for some this will mean their care cannot be undertaken in the way they would like, and we can discuss this further. The responsibility rests with all of us to behave responsibly and ethically for the protection of our community.

What’s the Difference Between an Obstetrician and a Gynaecologist?
An obstetrician cares for women and their babies during their pregnancy and for a short time after the birth. A gynaecologist deals with non-pregnancy related issues of women of all ages, including reproductive care and post-menopausal issues.
Today, almost all gynaecologists are also obstetricians.
Dr Thevathasan practises in most areas of gynaecology with a focus on managing menstrual problems, abnormal pap smears and surgery.
Her attention to the prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment of gynaecological conditions makes Dr Thevathasan the perfect gynaecologist for any woman.
She also specialises in operative gynaecology, especially regarding the management of vaginal prolapse.
In order to provide patients with comprehensive and coordinated healthcare she works with other gynaecological specialists.

If You’re Struggling to Fall Pregnant
Dr Thevathasan will assess you and your partner’s situation and discuss available options, including if and when tests or further investigations are appropriate
Whilst she has a preference to let nature dictate how the birth occurs, if necessary, Dr Thevathasan will deliver your baby through a Caesarean section. She operates in the Cabrini, Sandringham and Masada Hospitals
Pregnancy Due Date Calculator & Week Guide
Pregnancy Testing: Finding out if you’re pregnant is the first step in your new baby adventure.
Even though only 3% of all babies arrive on their due date, it’s necessary to have an idea of when to expect them. This also indicates when to expect to hear their first heartbeat, feel them move for the first time, and timetable the end of the first and second trimesters.
The Pregnancy Due-Date Calculator: Simply fill in the date your Last Menstrual Period (LMP) started and the calculator will work out the most likely date for your baby to arrive.
Once you have that result the Week Guide is the next step.
Week Guide: Here you will find information on your baby’s development and your expected symptoms. Each week you can read about your baby’s size, weight and developmental milestone expectations.
