Maternity Referrals

Book your first appointment with a midwife

The quickest and easiest option for booking your first appointment is to refer yourself online using the form on this page.

You can also contact our local maternity team directly.

As soon as you know you are pregnant, please get in touch with our local maternity team to book your first appointment. This is called your 'booking appointment', and you will meet one of their friendly midwives for the first time. In line with the Better Birth Strategy, your booking midwife should then be your named midwife.

Ideally you should be seen by a midwife before you are 10 weeks pregnant, or as early into your pregnancy as possible.
