Ante-natal and Post-natal Care
This care is shared with the hospital but outlined below is information of how we can help you at this practice:
Role of the GP
Shared care with hospital ante-natal department. The GP provides post natal care, six week check-up and contraceptive advice. Queries, questions or worries are dealt with by the GP or nurse.
Role of the Practice Nurse
Any queries, questions or worries regarding your ante-natal care can also be addressed by the Practice Nurse, including keeping a check on your blood pressure recording between visits to the mid-wife. The same applies to post-natal questions and the nurse can also give you advice on feeding, contraception and mother/baby well-being.
