Antenatal care

Appointments are individualised but are usually every 4 weeks until 28 weeks; every fortnight until 36 weeks; and then weekly until your baby is born

All appointments take place in the comfort of your own home, giving us a great opportunity to meet and get to know your family

After your booking appointment, subsequent appointments last 1-2 hours, giving plenty of time to discuss any pregnancy concerns and carry out routine checks on you and your baby’s wellbeing

An extended birth preparation session for you and your partner at 36 weeks to discuss your birth options, what to expect from labour and birth, your preferences in a variety of circumstances, and how to prepare for the postnatal period

Breastfeeding preparation session

24/7 phone access – we are always available for you in between appointments to discuss any questions you might have

Throughout your antenatal journey you will be encouraged to look at all your birth options and we will support you in the choices you make. If any consultant appointments are necessary, we will be happy to accompany you as your advocate.
