Atticus Health prides itself on being able to offer our female patients a comprehensive women’s health check up with female doctors. Dr Rahardja and Dr Vidanelage are experienced GPs who have a special love for the medical needs of women of all ages. Dr Prasadi is also accredited to provide Antenatal Shared Care with Frankston Hospital.
Shared Care during pregnancy enables you to complete your regular check-ups with your local doctor of choice as well as visiting the hospital for key milestone consultations. This reduces the number of hospital visits throughout your pregnancy and has proven to be more convenient, with less time spent in hospital waiting rooms and more time with your preferred GP.

- Pre-conception/Family planning
- Fertility preservation and treatment options
- Antenatal care

The benefits include; more time with your GP to discuss your concerns and needs, increased convenience in attending your local clinic and continuity of ongoing care with your new baby after they make their safe arrival.
