The purpose of antenatal care is to promote good physical and mental health throughout the pregnancy and to make sure that all is well with the mother and her baby. It also aims to identify problems early and to treat them appropriately.
As soon as you know you are pregnant, you should contact us to arrange your first antenatal visit.
In keeping with best practice guidelines we aim to see women for their booking visit between 12-14 weeks gestation.
Following a review of the history, a care plan is chosen to meet your needs. You are seen by a member of the medical team if further consultation is needed, to ensure the most appropriate care pathway for the pregnancy.
