Antenatal Care and Screening are offered according to current local guidelines. Our Practice Midwife is trained to care for mothers and babies throughout pregnancy, during labour and birth and also up to 28 days after birth. The Midwife provides care for the majority of women at the surgery and if extra care is needed then this is provided by the hospital.
You can speak to the Midwife on a Tuesday or Friday in the Practice and you can leave messages for her at Reception. However, if you need to speak to someone any other day you can ring the Maternity Advice Line on 01642 854876.
After your baby has been born, you will be contacted by the surgery to have your postnatal check done. This appointment will be to see the GP and will be when your baby is 8 weeks old. Your baby also needs to attend this appointment as after seeing the GP, your baby will have their first very important childhood vaccination. You will also be sent a registration form for your baby to be registered and we need this information (including the NHS no) before you attend for your appointment.
