We are delighted to be offering dedicated combined antenatal care clinics for any woman who may be pregnant, under the Maternity and Infant Scheme. This scheme provides an agreed shared programme of care to all expectant mothers.
On your first pregnancy the GP provides an initial examination, if possible before 12 weeks, and a further 5 examinations during the pregnancy, which are alternated with visits to the maternity unit/hospital. For susequent pregnancies you will have an initial examination and a further 6 examinations.
After the birth of your baby, the GP will examine the baby at 2 weeks and both mother and baby at 6 weeks.
