Community midwife

A community midwife will be your named contact throughout your pregnancy and up to 28 days after you have given birth. 

You will have a named midwife as your main caregiver, but other members of the team may give care when needed. You'll be placed into one of our teams - Core, Bramble, Poppy, Chestnut, or Hazel.

The teams work with other community services such as GPs, mental health teams and health visitors. 

The team will follow you throughout your pregnancy, support you in labour, and visit you and your baby at home.


The community midwifery service is available Monday to Friday, 9am to 12.30pm and 1pm to 4pm.

Telephone: 01709 423729

If you have any concerns about your pregnancy or your baby, please call Maternity Triage on 01709 427700.
