Antenatal Care

During pregnancy, you are advised to access antenatal care. This is to ensure that you and baby remain well and also to give you information about your choices and options for birth. We do understand that this can be both an exciting and anxious time for you, and so our aim is to give you expert care to ensure you have a positive pregnancy and birth experience. Pregnancy can be a worrying time and we want to help you feel relaxed and confident throughout.

All antenatal appointments are conducted in your own home or a mutually agreeable place. Normally you will see the same midwife throughout. Appointments are typically every 4 weeks until 28 weeks of pregnancy, then every 2 weeks until 36 weeks of pregnancy, then weekly until birth.
