There are several ways you can self-refer to our maternity and obstetrics service to help you start your antenatal care as soon as possible.

Self-refer to our service

It is really important for you and your baby’s health that you start your antenatal care early in pregnancy – in your first 10 to 12 weeks. 

You can self-refer to our service in one of the following ways:

  • Use our online form to self-refer to our service.
  • You can download a self-referral form: When you click the link, a Microsoft Word form should open on your computer. Save it to your computer, complete every field and email your completed form to our secure email address:
  • Call 020 3313 5222 from Monday through Friday, 10.00 to 17.00 and someone will take your self-referral details over the phone.
  • Speak to your community midwife. 
  • Come to an antenatal clinic at Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea or St Mary’s hospitals and complete your self-referral form there.
  • Be referred to us by your social worker or by any midwife, using our self-referral form. 

Please allow 72 hours before calling us to check the status of your appointment.
