By appointment

Maternity care is normally shared between your family health centre, here at The Groves, our community midwife and a hospital. When you know you are pregnant (a home pregnancy test is now the best way to confirm this), please make an appointment so we can arrange your care with the maternity services.

A healthy diet is an important part of a healthy lifestyle at any time, but is especially vital if you’re pregnant or planning a pregnancy. Eating healthily during pregnancy will help your baby to develop and grow, and will keep you fit and well. Read more about healthy eating during pregnancy at the NHS website.

All pregnant women are now to be offered vaccination against whooping cough when they are 28-38 weeks pregnant.  For more information, please visit the NHS website.
