I'm pregnant! What happens next?

  • You can refer to us directly by completing the self-referral form on the Rotherham Health App. Once completed, this form is sent to us automatically.
  • If you are not signed up with the Rotherham Health App, please contact your GP surgery to let them know you are having a baby, and they will make contact with our Community Midwifery service.
  • Once we receive the referral form, your Midwife will contact you within 1-2 weeks to arrange your first appointment. In the unlikely event that the Midwife has been unable to contact you, please contact the Community Midwifery Office on 01709 423729

Your first appointment

This is called your Booking Appointment and is usually completed by your 10th week of pregnancy.

  • Your Midwife will complete a full risk assessment of your health and that of your family
  • This will involve a general health check which will include blood tests
  • Choices about the antenatal care and place of birth will be discussed
  • Dad/partners and family members are welcome to accompany you to appointments (women are being asked to attend alone during COVID-19 restrictions), but you are welcome to attend on your own
  • It is routine to be seen on your own for part of your antenatal appointment 
  • Please feel free to access Public Health England’s ‘Screening Tests for You and Your Baby’ information online.
  • Your Midwife will provide you with a Personalised Care Plan information leaflet and paper document. This plan is for you and your baby. You are invited to document your wishes, concerns and preferences, which will be reviewed and discussed with you regularly throughout your pregnancy by your Midwife and/or Obstetrician.

You can find a number of useful resources and leaflets here.
