Community Midwives

The Community Midwives are able to offer full care during pregnancy. The doctors and midwife share the care of the expectant mother.

Your initial consultation with the midwife will usually take place in your home. You will be asked a few questions and the midwife will carry out some general health checks, and will arrange your hospital booking. Throughout your pregnancy will be seen regularly either at the practice or at the local hospital, or both.

There is a weekly Midwife Clinic held at the Samuel Johnson Community Hospital every Wednesday from 12:00 noon onwards, by appointment only.

Community Nurses

The District Nurses are available to see you in your home and help with dressings and removal of sutures, advice and care of the acutely and chronically sick and terminally ill and advice on incontinence, supplying pads and other aids.

Health Visitors

All Health Visitors are qualified nurses and many of them have had midwifery training. They also have a further year’s training in subjects such as Child Development, family structure, community health, the promotion of health in all age groups and psychology.

They work mainly with parents and young children and will visit you soon after you return home with your new baby. They may also visit you during your pregnancy and they work alongside the midwives.
