How often will I see my midwife?


Women who suspect or know they are pregnant should make an appointment with a midwife as early as possible. 

This allows our midwives to provide women with all the information and support they will need to make informed decisions about the care they wish to receive.

More information about how to book an appointment with a midwife can be found here.

Our midwives, doctors, nurses and support staff work together to follow national recommendations from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

This means that you will see your midwife or consultant regularly throughout your pregnancy.

They will check that you and your baby are well, give you useful information about being pregnant and what to expect, as well as answering any questions you may have.

Women with uncomplicated pregnancies can be cared for by their community midwife throughout but some women may need additional support from a consultant if there are any risk factors in their pregnancy.

This will be discussed with you at you initial midwife appointment.

At Morecambe Bay Hospitals we will provide, compassionate, high quality, evidence-based and safe maternity services that meet the needs and wishes of all women and their families.
