Maternity Care is Midwife-led

Maternity care is now fully midwife-led. This means all of your routine pregnancy care will be delivered by your midwife. If you have a non-pregnancy related health concern, please contact the surgery in the usual way.

Although your routine maternity care will be midwife-led, it’s important we are aware that you are pregnant. If you are pregnant, please send us a message via the website to let us know, along with your expected due date so we can ensure our records are updated.

Postnatal Support Group

This group is for mothers to connect with other mothers for support. The group provides information, support and tools to make you feel like you again.
