Ask 10 Pregnancy Questions (10PQ)

Dr Lionel Steinberg receives calls from pregnant patients from all around Australia who would like to ask questions about their pregnancy. To help provide care to more people we have introduced the ASK 10 PREGNANCY QUESTIONS (10PQ) service.
This service is not necessary for current patients, you are welcome to ask as many questions as you like at any time.


  • Step 1: Call our friendly team and request to join the ASK 10 QUESTIONS program.
  • Step 2: You’ll pay the one-time fee of $500 during this time.
  • Step 3: You’ll have the chance to ask 10 questions over the duration of your pregnancy.
  • Step 4: If you have a question (or three) already – Dr Lionel Steinberg will call you back on your preferred number to personally answer your questions as soon as he can.

Do I need Private Health Insurance to use this service?

No. This service is available to anyone. The same fee applies to all patients.
This service is ideal for pregnant women electing to have their baby in a public hospital as you can ask multiple questions to the same practitioner. Public patients are regular callers to our clinic and can find this service useful.

Do I need to have 10 questions ready?

We offer 10 questions to be answered throughout your pregnancy and postnatal period.  Dr Lionel Steinberg will be able to answer the majority of your questions in approximately five minutes. You can elect to ask your questions at any time during your pregnancy. You will receive a total of one hour (60 minutes) of Dr Lionel Steinberg’s time.

Is this an alternative to having my own Private Obstetrician?

This service may suit a private patient seeking several second opinions during their pregnancy.
The service does not replace your medical treatment from your GP, public hospital or private obstetrician. It is an obstetric question service and does not replace your medical provider.

Is there a Medicare Rebate for this service?

ASK 10 PREGNANCY QUESTIONS (10PQ) does not provide a Medicare rebate.

What kind of questions can I ask?

You can ask anything you like related to your obstetric care! There is really no question or topic that Dr Steinberg hasn’t been asked before. Dr Lionel Steinberg has 36 years of experience in all aspects of obstetric care.
As an example, here are some of the most common questions we get asked: 
  • Pre-pregnancy testing – what’s needed, when should I speak with a doctor, what am I testing for?
  • Pregnancy Tests – what is being tested for and should I have them
  • Down Syndrome Testing
  • Questions about nausea, morning sickness, hyperemesis
  • Fetal Movements – when to expect movements, if you’ve noticed a change in fetal movements.
  • Questions about preparing for your birth
  • Thrush during pregnancy
