Your pregnancy

Pregnancy can be an exciting but daunting time for women and their partners. There are many choices to make and questions to answer and through our webpages and contact with our staff we aim to help you and your family to have the best possible experience at this special time.

Early booking is recommended in pregnancy at around eight to 10 weeks to ensure that screening tests can be offered in a timely manner. This appointment is with the community midwife who can be contacted via your GP surgery. It is not necessary to see your GP first.

The options for place of birth will also be discussed with you at your booking visit and throughout your pregnancy. Download our patient information leaflet for more information.
