It has been an up and down year with regard to Covid and the restrictions we have to bring the numbers down. We have all embraced staying at home as much as possible, and the numbers have been decreasing. But it is becoming more and more apparent that there needs to be a balance between staying at home and attending to your health needs. It is important that symptoms are not ignored. If in any doubt it is better to seek advice than to just sit on symptoms that may be significant.
Dr Christine Thevathasan is offering appointments in various ways. We offer face-to-face appointments, Telehealth via video with a single link to click and phone appointments. You are free to select which you would prefer. If you are uncertain whether your appointment needs to be face-to-face, we would be happy to advise you based on your referral letter.
We will still be practising distancing as much as practicable. We will minimise the numbers in our waiting room, and may ask you to wait in your car. If you are coming into the House, we will ring you on the day to ask the screening questions; we ask that you please do not attend if this is indicated – we can convert your appointment to remote or reschedule. It is still preferable if only one person (the patient) attends, and please do not bring children.
There may be times when the office is unattended and we are working from home. 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.

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.

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.
