Antenatal Care and COVID-19 (coronavirus)

Our priorities are to provide you with safe, kind care, and to reduce the risks of the general public contracting COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Due to the advice regarding coronavirus and to protect our pregnant women and newborn babies we have to make some changes in how we see you during your pregnancy. This is being reviewed regularly in line with evidence.

Attending antenatal and postnatal care when you are pregnant and have a new baby is essential to ensure the wellbeing of you and your baby.

Face-to-face and virtual appointments

We have now returned to face-to-face appointments in line with national guidance, but there are appointments we are able to conduct virtually at your request.

If you are well, you should attend your face-to-face antenatal care. We will wear masks while caring for you (this may be changeable with national advice). If you have symptoms of possible coronavirus infection, you should postpone routine appointments until after the isolation period and seek advice from NHS 111.

Parent Education

During the pandemic, we were unable to provide parent education classes. We are now reintroducing classes, but on line for the time being. Your midwife will be able to discuss this with you.
