If you have recently found out that you are pregnant, firstly congratulations! It is advisable that you meet with the midwife before you reach 12 weeks to book in with the hospital or team you wish to deliver your baby. The options of where you have antenatal care can be discussed at your first appointment with the community midwife. When you are ready, please contact the practice with full details of your name, address and telephone number which will be passed on to the midwife. A midwife from the Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr hospital will contact you to arrange an appointment at hospital or in your own home.
Postnatal care is given by our midwife who will look after both you and your baby. The doctors are available for help and advice. Six weeks after the birth is an ideal time for your postnatal check with the Doctor. Please contact the practice for an appointment.
