The following questions help us to understand your situation, when you will need your first scan, and what kind of maternity care you might need. Please answer as best you can. We will discuss your responses further at your first appointment.
Sadly, sometimes a previous pregnancy can end in a loss. We offer bereaved parents special support in later pregnancies, as this can be a difficult and stressful time.
Women whose pregnancies are low risk (no medical problems or serious complications in previous pregnancies) are offered midwife-led care throughout their pregnancy, during their labour and after delivery.
Mental health in pregnancy is just as important as physical health. We have special teams of midwives and doctors to provide support for parents with mental health difficulties.
We understand that these questions may be sensitive. Please answer honestly so that we can arrange extra support for you and your family.
Have you, your partner or one of your children ever had a social worker?
Your first midwife appointment will either be at a clinic in the hospital or in a community centre. At this appointment you can discuss where you would prefer to have your pregnancy care, as well as where you would like to give birth.
Our teams across both hospital sites and the community work together as one maternity service to deliver the best quality of care for you and your family. You can expect most of your midwife appointments to be held at a community centre near you.
