The Bubble Launceston stands as a welcoming bubble for women's sexual, reproductive and mental health, embracing every phase from adolescence to menopause and beyond. Conveniently located on Brisbane Street, The Bubble commenced women’s health consults in April 2021.
Our unique approach encapsulates a woman's journey, creating a safe and encompassing space for their healthcare needs. Unlike traditional women’s health clinics, we specialise in pregnancy, post-partum and infant care, alongside an extensive range of specialised women's health services.
In 2018, just over half of Australia’s population—51% or 12.6 million people—were female. On average, Australian females experience different health outcomes than Australian males. Compared with males, females have a higher life expectancy and experienced more of their total disease burden due to living with disease rather than from dying early from disease and injury. They are more likely than males to experience sexual violence and to have multiple chronic conditions.
The Bubble brings together a group of local women’s health specialist GPs along with a dedicated support team made up of a registered psychologist, pelvic floor physiotherapist and registered midwife. They all have a strong interest and passion in women’s health care, providing a safe, holistic and inclusive service for patients.
From contraceptive advice to newborn care, our services are comprehensive and renowned for exceptional up to date management through an evidence-based lens.
When it comes to your pregnancy care options, The Bubble offers a personalised and comprehensive approach to GP pregnancy care also known as antenatal GP shared care.
In Australia, one in three women will have a termination of pregnancy. Of these women, a third, if not more of them, will have a second one at some point during their reproductive years.
Planning your pregnancy is important to ensure a healthy pregnancy with a good outcome. Unplanned pregnancies are at a higher risk of complications.
The Bubble doctors can provide a number of contraception options including the oral contraceptive pill, intrauterine device, hormonal implant, contraceptive injection, vaginal ring, and emergency contraceptive options.
The average age of menopause in Australia is 52. Perimenopause is that time leading into menopause and we refer to the time after menopause as post menopause.
