Pregnancy and maternity care

If you’ve found out you are pregnant, it’s best to see a midwife as soon as possible.

You can book an appointment directly with a midwife service without seeing a GP first.

Maternity Self-Referral

A GP referral is not required for antenatal care - please self-refer using the link below.

If you have not been taking folic acid supplements prior to pregnancy, you must start straight away - these help prevent problems for the baby. Please visit the link below for information on supplements.


All women who are trying to have a baby should take FOLIC ACID supplements daily, from BEFORE conception to at least 12 weeks of pregnancy. These are available in pharmacies and supermarkets. See here for more information.

Request an appointment at the surgery

If the services above are not suitable, you can request an appointment at the surgery.
