Antenatal care for most pregnancies is carried out at the surgery by our community midwife. Newly pregnant patients can book directly with the midwife for their first appointment. Routine follow up will be arranged by the midwife with blood tests and scans organised during the pregnancy.
Antenatal clinics are held on Wednesdays 14.00pm – 16.30pm and Thursdays 12.00pm – 17.00pm.
There is also a drop in session at the Daisy Hill Centre, Bedford Road Lower School, Bedford Road on a Thursday afternoon 1.00-3.00pm. Outside these times the community midwife can be contacted via the hospital.
For more information about antenatal care you can visit the NHS website.
Some Mums-to-be and young families qualify for NHS Healthy Start vouchers. For further information visit NHS Healthy Start or speak to your midwife or health visitor.
