Maternity

Your antenatal (maternity) care

Antenatal care is the care you get from health professionals during your pregnancy.

It’s sometimes called pregnancy care or maternity care.

You’ll be offered appointments with a midwife, or sometimes a doctor who specialises in pregnancy and birth (an obstetrician).

You should start your antenatal care as soon as possible once you know you’re pregnant. You can do this by contacting a midwife or GP.
