Family planning incorporates a number of areas with fertility health for individuals, couples and families.
At GPs on Curzon, all our doctors can discuss fertility and family planning. This can range from information alone, to pre-pregnancy planning, assistance with fertility management, contraception, pregnancy care and support after delivery of baby.
As women and families continue to have children at later stages of life, healthcare professionals have an enhanced role in helping to ensure potential mothers and fathers are as healthy as possible during all possible stages of the pregnancy journey.
Our GPs can help women achieve their reproductive life goals by knowing what they are and providing contraception, abortion, and preconception or inter-conception care as required.
Our GPs work very closely with the private Obstetricians in Toowoomba, Midwives, and the Toowoomba Base Antenatal Services.

Our doctors with a special interest in Preconception Genetic Testing
Dr Emily Geraghty, Dr Diana Sampson and Dr Peta Carriline have a particular interest in the options available for preconception genetic testing to try to detect if there are any pre-existing genetic diseases that are higher risk for a particular couple.
Mackenzie’s Mission is a research study providing reproductive genetic carrier screening to up to 10,000 couples across Australia. The screening will give prospective parents information about their likelihood of having a child with a severe genetic condition.
