What are Dr Wallman’s values?
The birth you want: Dr Wallman has an open mind when it comes to letting you give birth in your preferred way. If it is safe and possible, Dr Wallman will support your decision and strive to make it as comfortable and calm as possible.
Dedicated 24/7 service: Pregnancy and parenthood are full time gigs, so Dr Wallman has set up his practice to reflect the needs of his patients. Patients are provided with Dr Wallman’s personal contact number and encouraged to contact him immediately should any pregnancy related issues arise.
Delivery guarantee: In the same vein as his 24/7 contact assurance, Dr Wallman guarantees that he will deliver your baby. He insists on this for his own and the mother’s peace of mind – after months of working together, Dr Wallman believes that a your baby should not be delivered by a stranger.
Alternative birthing techniques
As traditional natural or caesarian births do not suit everyone, Dr Wallman encourages women to consider all of their birthing options. Women who seek methods outside the norm will have the doctor’s full support in the process.
Some of the birthing options endorsed by Dr Wallman include:
Calmbirthing/HypnoBirthing: Calmbithing is a technique used to allow women to take control of their labour, manage pain and remain calm. It can reduce or eliminate the need for drugs, shorten labour, and allow the mother to conserve her energy during the process. As a true advocate for Calmbirthing and HypnoBirthing, Dr Wallman has affiliations with two practitioners on the Gold Coast to ensure the highest level of expertise.
Natural Caesarian: A natural caesarian allows the mother to have maximum contact with her baby while still having a caesarian birth. Dr Wallman will move the baby into a safe position before allowing the mother to take hold of her newborn and complete the delivery herself. Dr Wallman is one of the few doctors on the Gold Coast who will happily encourage this procedure
Water birthing: Water birthing aids women in labour by providing mobility and comfort in the warm water while alleviating some of the pain of contractions. It can also be a more intimate birthing experience for the partner, who may also enter the bath to assist the laboring woman.
At the John Flynn Private Hospital on the Gold Coast where Dr Wallman is based, each birthing suite is equipped with a birthing bath. Water birthing is common practice at the popular Gold Coast hospital where an increasing number of women are opting for the bath.
Vaginal birth after caesarian (VBAC): VBAC is where are woman chooses to give birth vaginally, having had at least one child born via caesarean. Doctors and midwives generally monitor these births much more closely as there is a minor risk that the previous scar will tear.
Of course, Dr Wallman also treats gynaecological concerns. This is done with the utmost discretion and respect for the patient. From conditions such as endometriosis to routine pap smears and management of period pain, Dr Wallman will keep you well informed of your gynaecological health.
