Our expert says:
Your GP should be more than capable to monitor you throughout your pregnancy. You can consult the gynaecologist from week 36 if it is your first child. If not, rather consult your gynaecologist from week 32. You will only need ultrasound at week 16 (to check for abnormalities and to confirm the age of the fetus), 24 and 32, respectively. It is not necessary to have weekly ultrasounds done. Consult your doctor about the costs involved, as there are many procedures and tests which the medical aid might not cover.
