Patient Information Pamphlets

The College’s patient information pamphlets provide up-to-date information that can be discussed with your family and healthcare providers to help you make an informed decision about your care. You can view each pamphlet by clicking on the images below.
 
Feeling well-informed and confident about your decisions is an important part of your healthcare and a key element in the overall quality of your experience.  Professional information improves the communication between you and your healthcare providers and allows you to understand more about your health, any risk factors involved and treatment options available to you.
 
These pamphlets are intended to be used as a guide for information of general nature, having regard to general circumstances. The information presented should not be relied on as a substitute for medical advice, independent judgement or proper assessment by a doctor, with consideration of the particular circumstances of each case and individual needs. Each pamphlet reflects information available at the time of its preparation, but its currency should be determined having regard to other available information. RANZCOG disclaims all liability to users of the information provided.
