Community Midwifery Services
Along with our
Continuity of Carer teams we have traditional Community Midwifery teams who work
across the Rotherham borough.
When you find
out you are pregnant, a Community Midwife will take responsibility
for your care and will be your named contact throughout your pregnancy and
postnatal period, usually up to 14 days after you give birth.
Please be aware
our Community Midwives work in teams, therefore other members of the team may
contribute to providing your care.
Midwives work collaboratively with other community services, such as GPs,
Community Mental Health Team and 0-19 service (Health Visitors).
We also have specialist Vulnerability
Midwives who provide care in the community for women and families who need
Midwife is your first point of contact for any questions or enquiries.
The Community Midwifery service is available from 8.30am to 16.30pm, Monday to
Friday and can be reached on 01709 423729.
Outside of these
times, we operate an on-call service for planned Homebirths.
For all other
concerns about yourself or your pregnancy/baby, you can call our Maternity
Triage team on 01709 427700 (24/7)
