The government is now encouraging your midwife to be the first point of contact for all pregnant women. This means that women should book their first ante-natal appointment with our midwives, as soon as they have a confirmed pregnancy test (home test kits are sufficient).
During the first appointment the midwife will discuss medical history and plan ante-natal care accordingly. Patients can expect to have their first scan between around 12 to 14 weeks.
There is an antenatal clinic run by the midwives at Whitehills Community Centre. Appointments can be made either at reception or by telephoning (01307 415225).
