Finding out you are pregnant
Finding out you are pregnant is an exciting but sometimes frightening experience. Our aim is to ensure that you make the right choices for yourself and we will provide guidance, support and advice along the way.
I think I am pregnant – what should I do?
If your period is late and you suspect you may be pregnant you can buy a home pregnancy testing kit or make a telephone appointment with a GP to arrange providing a sample of urine.
My test is positive – now what?
You need to set the wheels in motion to make an appointment with a midwife. The early bird service can be accessed from as early as five weeks pregnant. Click this link and complete the online form
You will be sent a letter offering you an appointment, a screening leaflet
and a green pregnancy booklet for you to begin filling in within seven days of Maternity receiving your completed referral form.
You can then contact your GP surgery to tell them you are pregnant and arrange your first midwife appointment.
