Pregnancy Care Planner

The more you know about your pregnancy and your options, the more you are likely to feel in control. The information given here is based on The Pregnancy Book, which your midwife should give you at your first appointment.

A large part of your care will be carried out by your midwife. You will see the midwife at an early stage in your pregnancy for a booking appointment, when you will be given a lot of information about antenatal care, blood tests, scans and preparing for parenthood. Please contact the midwifery service soon after you have found out that you are pregnant.

The location of your midwife will depend on where you live . All pregnant ladies are asked to ring the centralised booking team on 01173420850 or email
