Maternity Services And Care Around Birth And Soon Afterwards

Antenatal Care

You can self refer to your hospital of choice for Antenatal Care. Please visit their website for further information.

If you need to speak to a GP please call us to book an appointment.

The Hospitals that our patients can access are: St. Georges, Chelsea and Westminster, St. Thomas, and Kingston Hospitals. Their websites are very informative, and have virtual walk throughs to help you decide where to book your antenatal care.

Throughout pregnancy, most care is shared between the midwives in hospital, Community Midwives and GPs. You will receive an antenatal book which tells you when you need checks and with whom.

Face to Face Post-natal Mum & Baby 6 Week Checks (Immunisations start at 8 weeks)

After birth, midwives remain responsible for providing care for at least the first 10 days until they hand over care to Health Visitors.

Please register your baby with the practice as soon as you have the papers from the hospital.

Please book your 6 week checks for both the Mother (to check Blood Pressure, Mental Health, and general recovery.) and the Baby (for a top to toe examination, and head circumference / weight check – Height/Length check is no longer recommended)
