Ante-natal Clinic and Post-natal Care

  • Ante-natal care is provided through a shared care system between your community midwives and your hospital obstetric team. Much of your routine ante-natal care is likely to take place here at the surgery under the care of the midwife.
  • Clinics run on Thursdays between 8:30 – 11am. Antenatal Drop-in sessions are also available at Howard St Sure Start, Children’s Centre Friday 9:30-11am
  • Secondary care can be arranged at any of the local hospitals that provide this service. In suitable cases home delivery can be arranged.
  • If you have any problems during pregnancy outside of routine ante-natal clinic appointments you can contact the community midwife on tel. 01706 517 223, or you can arrange to see a doctor in surgery in the usual way.
  • Community midwives provide antenatal care including drop in clinics, parenting classes and smoking cessation advice. Postnatal care of the mother and baby includes breastfeeding support groups and further smoking cessation support. Community midwives also offer advice and support for women who choose to have their babies at home.
