Community Midwives

The practice has attached community midwives who provide ante-natal and post-natal care for patients. The midwife is normally the first contact for patients who become pregnant and they will co-ordinate care up to and following birth. The doctors will provide support when special care is required or a need to refer to hospital. The delivery of ante-natal and post-natal care is called shared care between your surgery and the hospital. The health visitor will offer support and advice following birth.
