Community midwives provide antenatal and postnatal care in children’s centres and GP practices. We also run an award-winning homebirth service.
It’s important to book your care early in your pregnancy. Many of the screening tests we offer need to be done before you are 13 weeks pregnant.
Our early pregnancy unit and early pregnancy assessment clinics see pregnant women people with pain and/or bleeding in early pregnancy.
When you meet your named midwife, you will plan your on-going care together. This will include regular appointments to check your and your baby’s health during pregnancy.
There is a wealth of information available for pregnant women and people online. We recommend using websites that are endorsed by the NHS or national charities.
We offer a range of free antenatal education sessions for all first time parents.
Most pregnancies are uneventful. If complications develop you will need extra care. Find information and support for pregnancy complications.
