The more you know about your pregnancy and your options, the more you are likely to feel in control. The information given here is based on The Pregnancy Book, which your midwife should give you at your first appointment.
If you are planning a pregnancy, please call your doctor for advice on pre-conception health including blood testing for rubella immunity.
When you find out you are pregnant, please make your ‘Booking’ appointment with the midwife at the practice. Please ask at front desk for more details.
If you wish to discuss your pregnancy please call for a telephone consultation with your doctor.
The antenatal clinic is run on a Wednesday morning for routine antenatal check-ups.
Time: Wednesday 9:00am – 12:00pm
Post Natal Checks
Post natal checks are done 6 to 8 weeks after delivery and are performed at the same time as your baby’s 6 week check. These will be carried out by your doctor and need to be booked in advance.
Child Immunisations Clinics
The first baby immunisations are due at the age of 8 weeks (after the 6 week check has been done).
For more information about the ages that vaccines should be given, and the diseases they protect against ask the practice nurse or health visitor or visit the NHS immunisation website.
