Antenatal care is the routine service provided for pregnant women. The practice follows the NICE guidelines for Antenatal care and a schedule of this will be given to you by the midwife at booking. This service is usually provided as shared care between your doctor and midwife and hospital consultant if appropriate. The 1st appointment is usually around 8-10 weeks with the midwife, please book this as soon as the pregnancy is confirmed, the first appointment is a long one and usually takes an hour to complete. Please let reception know as soon as you are pregnant so that they can refer you to the midwives. There has been a major change to the midwifery teams and they now work from community centres rather than GP surgeries. You do not need to see the GP routinely in the absence of any complications to announce your pregnancy and can be referred directly to the midwife through the reception
After your baby is born and you return home from hospital a midwife will contact you either by phone or visiting your home address, she will arrange a schedule of visits and post natal appointments that are tailored to your need, some of these may be at the hospital or local Childrens Centre. When the midwife discharges you from her care the Health Visitor will be available to offer you help and advice. You should remember as soon as possible to register your new baby with the doctor at the surgery and also to book your 6 week postnatal appointment with your doctor. Your 6 week postnatal check includes having your weight and blood pressure checked and offering of a cervical smear and contraceptive advice.
