DO YOU THINK YOU COULD BE PREGNANT?

We are often asked what you need to do if you think you are pregnant.  The GP no longer tests for pregnancy, the patient needs to buy a pregnancy test from a chemist to determine if they are pregnant.  If you find that you are in fact pregnant you do not need to see the GP to be referred to the Midwife, you can now self refer.  This will enable you to get a faster appointment to see your midwife who can give advice and who will be able to book you in for your first dating scan. 

To make contact with the midwife please visit the website www.esht.nhs.uk/maternity/referral.  Just fill in your details and click submit.  Your Community Midwife will be in contact with you to book your first appointment.

The more you know about your pregnancy and your options, the more you are likely to feel in control. The information given here is based on The Pregnancy Book, which your midwife should give you at your first appointment.
