Your Antenatal Care

Arrow In this section

Antenatal care is the care you receive when you are pregnant. You may have your antenatal care in one of our community clinics or at one of our antenatal clinics within the hospitals.

Midwives provide ongoing care throughout your pregnancy and this care is tailored to meet your individual needs and circumstances. Wherever possible you will see the same midwife, or team of midwives to ensure continuity of care. Some women will require input from a variety of professionals at different points in their pregnancy. This may include consultations with consultant obstetricians, anaesthetists, neonatologists or other specialists. Out team also includes maternity support workers and clerical staff.
