When you become pregnant, your first contact is with a midwife, who records details of your medical history and assesses how healthy you are. The midwife will find out if your pregnancy is progressing well.
The local CMU team will support all expecting mothers in the area throughout their pregnancy and following the birth.
If there are no problems with either your health or that of your unborn baby, you will be able to receive all your care locally, all the way through to giving birth. You will be able to do this even if this is your first baby.
If there are any concerns whatsoever about your health, or that of your baby, you will receive your care jointly between the local midwives, physiotherapists, dietitians & obstetricians.
