Antenatal Care

Appointments usually take place at your home, and can last up to an hour, at a time to suit you. However, towards the end of your pregnancy I would expect these to be during the daytime, even if you are still working, as you are entitled to time off for antenatal appointments. I would normally see you about monthly until 28 weeks, then fortnightly until 36 weeks and weekly from then until you give birth.

During these appointments I will be carrying out the usual physical checks to ensure you and your baby are healthy, but also there will be plenty of time to discuss other things that are on your mind, answer any questions you may have, and challenge you to think about different aspects of your pregnancy along the way, so that you can feel as prepared as possible, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually for your baby’s birth and life with your newborn.
