Maternity Care

Please let us know as soon as you know you are pregnant (and preferably before the seventh week) so we can book you in for Antenatal Care.

  • Antenatal Check

20 minute appointment (please book in advance)

  • Postnatal Check

20 minute appointment 6 weeks after giving birth (please book in advance)

Do not forget to take Folic Acid and Vitamin D supplements as early on as you can, or come to see us for pre-conception advice.

  • If you can, please make sure your smear tests are up to date before pregnancy as we cannot do cervical smears during pregnancy
  • Influenza vaccination is recommended as soon as you find out you are pregnant
  • Whooping Cough vaccination (to protect your newborn baby) from 20 weeks

After the baby arrives your Midwife or Health Visitor will keep you informed on the relevant steps however; the doctors would also like to see you at 6 weeks for a Post Natal Check.
