Antenatal care is an important part of your pregnancy. All appointments are designed to ensure the wellbeing of mum and baby. Being pregnant is an exciting time but it can be daunting and worrying too – my private antenatal care can help you throughout your pregnancy
How my private antenatal care works
In early pregnancy, you will see your midwife for your booking in appointment and again at around 16 weeks. For first time mums, the next midwifery appointment will be at 25 weeks and for subsequent pregnancies, it will be at 28 weeks.
During this time, you may have lots of questions and feel like you need more support.
My private antenatal care appointments are there to offer you reassurance when you need it most. They take place in your home at a time and date that suits you. I am flexible and can provide your appointment at short notice if necessary.
I will carry out all the checks appropriate to your gestation. This means checking your blood pressure, testing your urine and more importantly, listening to your baby’s heartbeat!
My findings will be fully explained to you at the time. You will receive a copy the antenatal check by email for you to keep. By law, I need to keep these records for 25 years – and I can show you my full policies about this if you would like to see them.
The appointments can be a one off or you can book several appointments.
This service comes with free follow up, which means you can contact me at any time for advice and support for as long as you need me.
These appointments can also work alongside your existing community midwife appointments and can be slotted in as and when you need them throughout your pregnancy.
