Antenatal Care

All doctors provide maternity medical services. There is a service to provide both antenatal and postnatal care in the practice. On receiving a positive pregnancy test the receptionist will take the patient’s personal details and pass these onto the midwife. They will be contacted by the midwife who will make arrangements to see them at home for their first antenatal home booking appointment. There is also a weekly antenatal clinic run by our midwife. The practice does not undertake home deliveries. Postnatal care is carried out at the patient’s home by the midwife
