My Pregnancy

The first thing to do when you find yourself pregnant is to complete an online self-referral form found HERE. Your referral is received immediately via the maternity admin team for processing. A midwife will contact you within two weeks to arrange your first booking appointment, which will be between 8-10 weeks of pregnancy.

Antenatal care is usually provided by your midwife at your local GP surgery or children’s centre. Most of our pregnant ladies are cared for in the community near to where you live for the majority of your pregnancy. If you need to see a doctor during your pregnancy you will be required to come to the main hospital in Taunton. All scans are held within the antenatal clinic at the main hospital.
