The antenatal clinic is held on a Monday. To make an appointment with the midwife, please telephone to the surgery
on 02920 388 031.
Midwives are specialists in pregnancy and birth, and the midwife's role is to look after a pregnant woman and her baby throughout the antenatal period, during labour and birth, and for up to 28 days after the baby has been born.
As long as everything is normal in pregnancy, a midwife can provide all your antenatal care. If complications arise, a midwife will refer you to a doctor who is trained to deal with special situations.
Once you have confirmation of pregnancy, it is beneficial to you to register with midwife as soon as possible. The midwife would like to discuss the type of maternity care available. Depending on individual assessments, some maternity care may require hospital visits and some may only require visits to the surgery.
