Pregnancy appointments

Please note: Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus outbreak and the need to maintain social distancing, you will only be able to have one support person with you at the dating scan (12 weeks) and anomaly scan (20 weeks) and you will need to attend ALL other appointments alone.  Our maternity staff are committed to giving you the best care possible during this challenging time and are sorry for the upset this may cause you and your partner.

Please email the scanning department if you have any questions about scans:


After finding out you’re pregnant, you should contact your GP or local children’s centre to arrange your first community midwife appointment. You should also book your birth with us, using our online booking form.

When you meet your named midwife, together you will both plan your on-going care.

See below for what to expect at each appointment throughout your pregnancy.
