Antenatal Clinic .
You will be seen regularly throughout your pregnancy by the Midwife and/or Doctor and at hospital. Please always bring a urine sample in a clean bottle to your antenatal appointment. These bottles can be provided to you at Reception if you need one.
Your immediate postnatal care will be provided by the Midwife team, with your postnatal check being provided by the Surgery team around 6 to 8 weeks after the birth.
You will be provided with contact telephone numbers to enable you to contact a Midwife at any time if you have concerns or problems.
Comprehensive confidential advice is available during normal surgery times by all the GPs. We offer general advice on contraception and in particular oral contraceptives, injectable contraception, implants and IUS/Ds (coils).
Implants and IUS/Ds require a special appointment, which you will need to arrange with Reception. It is important that you discuss whether an implant or IUS/D is appropriate for you with your GP before making this appointment.
The ‘morning after pill’ or emergency contraception is prescribed when appropriate, but you need to seek advice within 72 hours.
