Antenatal care throughout your pregnancy
To ensure you and your baby are healthy throughout your pregnancy; an appointment will be made for you to see your consultant once every four weeks until you reach 32 weeks. After 32 weeks, you will see your consultant fortnightly and then weekly or more often if required. Some patients may need more frequent appointments.
You will be seen by our dedicated midwifery team in the midwife-led clinics, giving you the opportunity to discuss your birth plan. The type of pain relief you would like to receive and helpful tips for example about breast-feeding techniques. You can also use this time to take a tour around The Westminster Maternity Suite so you can see all the facilities available, and ensure you are familiar with the suite before you have your baby.
You will have an assessment carried out by the midwives on the suite, which will help us to identify any additional monitoring or further tests you may need to support you throughout your pregnancy.
