What we do
We support you and your family through pregnancy, labour and after the birth, and we aim to provide the highest standard of care, support and advice during this time. Most of our community midwives work both in the hospital and in the community.
We want you to achieve your ideal birth experience, whether this is at home or in hospital.
Our services include:
Your antenatal care
Some women who have had a medical condition or previous pregnancy problem require shared care - care from a consultant obstetrician and community midwife.
Where there are no medical or previous obstetric problems, care can be provided by a community midwife, known as Midwife Led Care.
Your postnatal care
We visit you on the day you return home between 9am-5pm. We will care for you and your baby until the baby is 10 days old or longer depending on your needs. We also advise and support you in your chosen method of feeding and inform you of support groups in your local area.
Registering the birth
Your baby's birth must be registered within 42 days. Details of the Registrar of Births in your area will be given in a leaflet or please ask if not offered on discharge.
