Antenatal care is the care you receive from healthcare professionals during your pregnancy. You'll be offered a series of appointments.
Our GPs like to see a patient at least once during her pregnancy.
When you become pregnant, we will arrange an appointment with you with the midwife when the midwife will ask you a few questions, discuss birthing venues and carry out some general health checks.
There have been many developments in antenatal and newborn screening over the past five years. For more information please visit NHS Choices.
