Midwives from Frimley Park Hospital are attached to the practice and share responsibility for ante and post natal care with the doctors. If you have done a positive pregnancy test, you do not have to see a doctor unless you have concerns. You should make a "booking in" appointment with the Midwives when you are about 8 or 9 weeks. The Midwives will then advise on all aspects of the pregnancy. Patients can, if they wish, contact the Midwives directly, to make the booking appointment themselves or speak to Reception.
The Midwives can be contacted by telephoning 01252 749598. All pregnant women will be given information on how to contact the Midwives in an emergency.
Clinics are usually held at Yateley Medical Centre.
