Antenatal care is the care you get from healthcare professionals to ensure you have a healthy pregnancy.
Antenatal care will include regular appointments with a midwife, ultrasound scans and screening tests for you and your baby. Occasionally you will be offered appointments with an obstetrician (doctor who specialises in pregnancy and birth)
There’s strong evidence that booking in with your community midwife as early as possible will help you and your baby to stay happy and healthy. Your community midwife can also provide lots of information, answer your questions and help you to book appointments for things like scans.
Our local midwife holds antenatal clinics at the Buttercup Centre in Warndon.

Urgent advice and assessment
The triage service is based at the hospital and provides emergency help and support. If something is not quite right and you want to speak to someone straight away please get in touch. The hospital service often see mums to be who:
- can’t feel the baby move when they expect to
- suddenly start to have an unusual pain
- are bleeding
- are suffering from itching
If you need advice or to see someone urgently give the hospital triage team a ring on 01905 733196 (Worcestershire Royal Hospital).
