South Australian Perinatal Practice Guidelines
The South Australian Perinatal Practice Guidelines (SAPPG) outline the principles for managing pregnancy and newborn related conditions and/or performing a procedure related to pregnancy and/or the newborn.
The SAPPG are designed as a guide for the following clinicians:
- general practitioners
- trainee medical officers
- registered midwives
The SAPPG are intended for use throughout South Australia and govern only those aspects of pregnancy care that require medical authorisation. They provide clinicians state-wide access to a uniform process of clinical assessment, decision making and practice. Clinicians should use these guidelines within the context of offering individualised care for pregnant women and their babies.
