Midwives: Ante-natal and Post-natal Care
A shared care system is provided between the GPs, Midwives and Dorset County Hospital. A small team of Midwives is attached to each surgery.
The Midwives offer antenatal, labour and postnatal care whether you choose to have a hospital or home birth. A Midwives clinic is held twice a week at the Surgery.
Antenatal classes and postnatal care are provided in partnership with the Health Visitors.
If you think you are pregnant, please call in to the surgery and inform reception. You will then be given a 'Bounty Pack' which includes how to self refer to the midwifery team and other important information. You can also self refer on-line.
