Pregnancy (Antenatal & Postnatal)

Have you just found out that you are pregnant and it was unplanned? Or do you think you might be pregnant and you need to know more about what options you have?

We do have a Community Midwife who runs a clinic on a Tuesday afternoon and all day on a Friday. If you are unable to make these days, you are welcome to call the Nomony Centre and book an appointment with them.

Antenatal care is the help you receive from health professionals during the course of your pregnancy. It is important you take good care of your own health and that of your unborn baby during pregnancy.

As soon as you find out you are pregnant, you should get in touch with us to find out more information on the services and support that are available to you.

Postnatal care extends for between 6-8 weeks after the birth of your baby. During this period, routine checks are carried out by the Health Visitor and you and your baby’s recovery is monitored.

During your postnatal care you will find out about feeding, potty training, illnesses, safety and more. You will be able to ask your Health Visitor questions and request advice.
