Antenatal servicesIn partnership with the midwifery team we provide full antenatal and postnatal care.
Our two midwives are based at the practice and, in combination with your GP, will look after you throughout your pregnancy.
We aim to provide high quality, personal care for mums-to-be in comfortable and familiar surroundings.
Having the same dedicated midwives based at the practice provides continuity of care and ultimately a better service for you during your pregnancy.
Uncomplicated pregnancies (ie no existing medical problems) for first time mums usually receive 10 appointments throughout their pregnancy and one appointment after the baby is born. If you have had a baby before you may require fewer appointments.
On becoming pregnant you see your GP as usual and if you have an uncomplicated obstetric and medical history your GP will offer you either GP led or midwifery led care.
If you have a more complicated pregnancy or medical history you will be referred for Consultant Led care which is based at the hospital.
